10:20  Protection for tītī as they return to nest at Otago Peninsula

Migratory tītī or muttonbirds have returned to the Otago Peninsula late after their colony was devastated in Autumn this year.

Forest and Bird have been helping the tītī breed at Sandymount for the past two seasons, but a ferret slipped through the trapline in April, killing the monitored chicks just weeks before they were due to fledge.

Franny Cunningham from Forest and Bird gives insights into the protection needed to help the Titi - also known as sooty shearwaters - with their mainland colonies.
