Hi neighbours. We're still being asked to conserve water after one of the driest years on record.

Following a dry 2019, the region saw a record 40 days with no rain in January and February, paving the way for water restrictions that would continue into December.

Despite the restrictions and Aucklanders being the most efficient water users in New Zealand, the dam levels are still low and Watercare is asking everyone to try and save 20 litres per day.

We’ve put together a list of easy ways you can save water around your home, as well as a few ideas for if you’re willing to go the extra mile.

Zoo staff hunt for puweto: west Auckland

Auckland Zoo staff have joined Matuku Link colleagues to scour for the elusive puweto.

Puweto, or the small dark coloured rails, live in freshwater wetlands scattered throughout the country, with their largest populations in the North Island.

The Matuku Link is a 37 hectare native forest block in west Auckland's Bethell's Valley.

The reserve connects many protected areas including Ark in the Park, Habitat Te Henga, Forrest Ridge and Matuku Reserve.

Staff from the zoo and Matuku Link joined volunteers to search for the birds in Bethells wetlands.

The presence of small dark coloured rails in a particular wetland signals the overall health of the ecosystem.

But more than 90 per cent of New Zealand's wetland areas have been drained and cleared for agriculture which has yielded a major impact on all species.

Puweto need vegetation such as raupo and kuta in which to forage and nest.

Surveyors used a recorded sound of the birds' calls to aid monitoring.

They saw two puweto and netted 13 call responses at 38 listening posts.

Kia Ora,

My elderly father has given me a microcasette to digitise.

Its an oral family history of our family travels into SE Asia post Somerset Maugham and during the war of independence of Indonesia - early sixties.

We are keen to keep this oral history and i need to purchase or borrow a microcassette player / dictaphone so that i can have the tape digitised.
Alternatively someone who has a player and is in the business of tape conversion to digital sound file.

It would make an old man very happy to know that we have been able to do this for him and for our family.

Many thanks on advance.

Waka Kotahi (NZTA) is advising motorists travelling southbound on the Auckland Harbour Bridge to expect delays due to the closure of the clip-on lanes.

The lanes will be closed for resurfacing and other maintenance from Boxing Day for up to ten days. This closure will affect the Shelley Beach off-ramp with access controlled by a stop/go managment system.

Motorists are encouraged to use the Western Ring route if there are delays on the bridge. Three lanes will be open to traffic in both directions says Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency Auckland System Manager, Andrea Williamson.

“The resurfacing process on the bridge requires 3-5 days to “cure” before allowing traffic on it, so while it may look as if nothing is happening the team will be using the lanes closure for other maintenance tasks, including water blasting and painting just below the road deck.”

Motorists are advised to check Waka Kotahi's social media sites for any updates on the lane closures during the 10 day period.

Auckland Zoo bird keepers Casey and Erin have helped Ark in the Park to band and weigh tiny 15-day old kokako chicks.

Ark in the Park is an open sanctuary and conservation project in the Waitākere Ranges near Auckland.

Zoo staff joined volunteers to take an annual census in the west Auckland nature reserve, recording all banded and un-banded birds.

About 1600 pairs of kokako remain in the north island.

The census is held to note their presence in the forest and determine if their populations are growing.

The bands are used to identify each individual bird which bears its own unique colour combination.

Data gleaned from the survey is used to scout out nests.

The chicks are moved from the nest for weighing and banding before being returned swiftly to their mother.

The path will trial connecting the existing cycleway in Savoy Rd to the town centre and comes after two community co-design workshops this month.

The pop-up cycleway is part of Waka Kotahi’s $210,000 Innovating Streets for People pilot programme.

Waitakere Ranges Local Board Member Mark Allen said there will be room for evaluation and feedback at the end of the trial.

“.... providing a safe way for the community to use other methods of transport to connect to the town centre will only be beneficial in the long run, and that’s why this project is so exciting," Allen said.
