More good news from The Kakapo Recovery Programme, with this report from New Zealand's Stuff.

Kakapo on Codfish Island have laid five eggs with more thought to be on the way.

Kakapo recovery team leader Paul Jansen yesterday said one bird, named Lisa, had laid three eggs, while another had laid two.

The team had checked nests of the endangered parrot on the island, near Stewart Island, on Sunday and had tried to check fertility on Monday night but Lisa would not get off her nest, Mr Jansen said.
