New Zealand springs forward this weekend as Daylight Saving time begins.
Clocks will go forward by one hour at 2am on Sunday 27 September. Daylight saving time will continue until Sunday 4 April 2020, when clocks will go back by one hour to NZ Standard Time.

Most New Zealanders should experience a seamless transition, with modern electronic devices adjusting automatically. However, older devices may need to be adjusted manually.
Do not forget it is also a good time to check emergency plans, survival kits and smoke alarms.

Walk around the Wainuiomata Coast line

Louise from Woburn

A couple of weeks back my husband and I decided to take on a trek around a bit of Fitzroy Bay and out to the seal colony at Turakirae Heads. It blows like the clappers around there, but if you can catch it on a good day the tracks are well formed and flat. Ironically, we saw more seals behind … View moreA couple of weeks back my husband and I decided to take on a trek around a bit of Fitzroy Bay and out to the seal colony at Turakirae Heads. It blows like the clappers around there, but if you can catch it on a good day the tracks are well formed and flat. Ironically, we saw more seals behind various rocks near the car park on Coast Road than out at the seal colony where they are quite spread out and not so easily viewed (you'll see what I mean when you get there). From a naturalist's point of view the coast is very rewarding. I observed my first New Zealand pipit and managed to get a couple of pics. I haven't logged it yet on iNaturalist, but it will be the first recording of one for Lower Hutt.

Did you guys know there is a super cool New Zealand falcon, aka kārearea, that hangs around Woburn?

I'm so glad this rare endemic species is officially listed as "recovering", … View moreDid you guys know there is a super cool New Zealand falcon, aka kārearea, that hangs around Woburn? I quite often see him flying down Woburn Road and snacking on little birds in Ludlam Park or the Hutt Rec. I'm so glad this rare endemic species is officially listed as "recovering", we are very lucky that some live in the Hutt. A magnificent bird.

They have a murmuration most evenings somewhere along the river, often up by the Ewen Bridge. Although common in New Zealand, their numbers have sadly halved in the last thirty years in their native Europe where they form an important part of the ecosystem, such as controlling insects like grass grub. I snapped this guy last Friday when the weather was not so good, but he still caught a few rays of light in the top of a pōhutukawa. The other picture is from earlier in the year when a group of young starlings (you can tell they are young by the brown heads) were wheeling around over the Hikoikoi Reserve.
