Hello friends and family
Paul, Jen, Dot and Olivia headed home on Tuesday morning after a wonderful visit. What an awesome birthday gift to have them here, leaving me with many treasured memories. (don’t nursery rhymes stick in your head!)
Chris arrived mid-day on Wednesday and Hiltrun late afternoon. It was time to do a count of the current moulters and there were more than 40 down the hill here and also at the Moeraki colony. We now have 10 YEPs in care here and 10 in soft release.
We have enjoyed a couple of summer days and it is nice to head into the shade and do some weeding. With the amount of rain that we have had and the plague of bunnies, the Poro-poro is rampant. Few plants grow so fast and they can block a penguin’s access to their home in a few months.
The garden is producing plums, pears, courgettes, carrots, tomatoes, broad beans and silver beet. It is just as well that I have had some help to eat them.
Have a great week!
