Hello friends and family
I have started on the big hedge. If I want it cut I must do it myself. I will at do at least ½ hour a day with the goal of having it done by the end of May. I have a bit of time now as all the consultation deadlines have passed. While I am operating chain saws and hedge cutters, common sense dictates that I wear a safety helmet to protect my head, eyes and ears. It sounds so simple, but the outcome is that I am trying to work in confined spaces with a giant head. Go figure!
I released the Rock Hopper on Tuesday as he was ready to go – calling in the night and jumping into his water dish. What a treat to be able to help such an iconic species! He has a scar on his flipper which is probably why he needed a helping hand in the first place. Tuesday was my day to do a submission to the Waitaki District council about their 10-year plan. It made the ODT
My two Yellow-eyed penguins still in care are making slow progress which is great. I did the rounds on Wednesday and Friday. I am still catching predators – mostly rats which are probably getting hungry with no nesting sea birds to predate. Katiki Point made the ODT again yesterday katiki-point-tourist-site-suggested.
Have a great week!
