Hello friends and family
The days are rushing by and the list of jobs is being ticked off. On Sunday and Monday, I cut the back hedge and on Tuesday we did the final tidy up of the nest boxes as this will be our last weekend working in the reserves before we back away and let the penguins prepare for the new season. This means that we can focus on jobs in the hospital and fields.
I went to the Top-tip for my monthly turn on Wednesday and was very pleased that it had warmed up a bit. On the way home, I picked up 5 trays of wee trees from Linda – Thank you – and 100 more tree protectors.
Thursday was a beautiful day and Jan, Robbie and I visited most of the other North Otago penguin areas. At Shag Point the bird call was delightful – a tribute I think to the trapping that our team does there. Roger and Raylene visited with family in the afternoon.
Elaine called in on Friday with 2 office chairs to make using the microscope more comfortable and with news of the great team at Otago University who are supporting our Malaria efforts. Hiltrun arrived and we were joined by Patrick and Jan for Saturday’s working bee. Robbie and Barb came to visit later in the day, so I am having a great social time!
Have a great week!
