Bad start for Walnut season.

Ian from Papanui

Things aren’t looking good for this year’s walnuts. Plenty on the tree but they seem to be having problems releasing from the husks. Another unusual problem is that someone is eating them on the tree. A count this morning found 40% had been gnawed, presumably by mice, judging by the size of some of the holes in the shells and the successful hollowing out of the meat inside.
Anyone else finding the same?

Covid-19: Aucklanders should take level 3 restrictions with them

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Hi neighbours,

Flights from Auckland to the other main cities have continued as normal since the Auckland region moved to Covid-19 alert level 3 and the rest of New Zealand moved to alert level 2 on Sunday.

Some 108 flights departed Auckland Airport on Monday, including 15 to Christchurch, 14 to Wellington and seven to Queenstown.

Those travelling during the weekend included about 2000 Aucklanders who were in Christchurch for the city’s largest outdoor music festival, Electric Avenue.

Microbiologist Siouxsie Wiles said anyone travelling from Auckland needed to take their level 3 restrictions with them because they could unknowingly be incubating the virus.
