Hello friends and family
The days are getting longer, and we are responding by ticking jobs off the list. Tree planting has slowed down until we can access the south end of the Moeraki colony when the stock have finished their winter grazing and we can drive to the fence. No prizes for doing things the hard way.
The weather was spring-like, and Kowhai and Clematis are in bud, about to flower at any time. That all changed on Thursday when we all got wet doing the rounds in the morning. The paddock was very slippery, so I was not keen to drive there again in the afternoon.
Therefore, I took the photographer down the hill here for his magazine article. Cathy and Jon were visiting at the same time, so we were all treated to a display of penguins on the beach, one of which was a juvenile. On Friday I released the 2 girls from the hospital so am now down to one male in care. He is a bit slower to rally, but I will try to not rush him.
Hiltrun came up yesterday and once again we had the chance to watch penguins for a while. We watched one Juvenile chasing another – how amazing is that!
Have a great week!
