Has anybody got any ideas for a caption?

"Thanks to a wonderful husband who took me there and a low tide, Pāuatahanui was a bird photographer's dream this afternoon! Masses of kingfishers who were either sitting on bits of driftwood or logs, in between catching little crabs, a pile of shags who were in a very flappy mood and were constantly splashing about in the water, a pair of Caspian terns who didn't seem to be getting on too well, a blue heron who was getting annoyed by a seagull who was swooping over him. So much to see and photograph! It helped wearing some wellies so I could wade in to get some closer shots."

Our SPCA Pet of the Day is Lulu.

"I am a sweet dog looking for my forever home. I am looking for a very special home that can understand my quirks and needs, a home that can help me thrive and be the best companion I can be.
My ideal home would be one that has had previous large dog experience and/or greyhound experience. I walk beautifully on a lead but in saying that, I would need a home that can handle me as I can be strong when I want. I have had a fair amount of training from my previous home but there is always room for more growth. I am super smart and a lover of all yummy foods so will pick up new things very quickly.
I can be shy when meeting new people so I would love a quiet patient home that can read when I am not comfortable. A home with no children would be best for me. Being part greyhound, I am also not suited to a home with cats or any small animals. If you think you are the home for me contact SPCA’s Canine Team for more information."

He comes with a FREE large well-made hutch. Would suit a section with plenty of space - unfortunately we have also downsized our section and can’t accommodate bunnies like we once could. He’s super cute and affectionate. Can post photos as requested.

How would you like to be pensioners in their 80's receiving letters out of the blue, telling you your income tax return was overdue.
How also would you like to be an 83 old woman who has been in and out of hospital twice this year and is confined to a wheel chair been told you are required to do this within 30days and can do so by going to ird.govt./myIR a lady who turning on the telly. is hard enough but would not have a clue regarding computers and the internet.

Surprise, surprise, another letter with the post date the same as the previous one, stating they have charge a late filing penalty of $50.
incidentally we both got similar letter with similar requirements and demands and also all letter had the same issuing date.
Try to contact ird by phone is an near impossibility.
We had previously been told a couple of years previous that as we were on the basic pension there was no need to fill in such forms, incidentally also, we had never received any form anyway.
The outcome, after hours of time and effort investigating, is that as we had a part pension from the UK which is topped up by WINZ although WINZ taxes the NZ part of my top up they do not tax the UK portion so
ALL YOU BRITS OUT THERE you could be liable if you do not fill forms in and declare your part UK pension.
We are finally clear, till next tax year, after filing and declaring the small amount I get from the oveseas part-pension, I also have never received any Kiwi Saver type allowance for my part pension, so watch out guys!
you may be getting your KIWI SAVINGS as a supplement to you pension at present, we don't we get the lot deducted from our pension as they said you cannot get two pension payments so bit of an anomaly creeping in here.
Watch out guys! once they get everyone into Kiwi Saver, mark my words, you will all be getting one pension and your Kiwi saving will be deducted like our is, from your basic pension.
