Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Words and picture by Louise Thomas.

"I love birding – some days are just filled with hope and potential. I set out in the rain hoping to maybe see a few kākā/brown parrots or maybe snap a few tui on the right angle, possibly come across some rotund kererū for comedic relief. But some days are blessed with a little extra and the unexpected. Today I came across an unbanded pair of kākāriki/red-crowned parakeets (Cyanoramphus novaezelandiae) fossicking in the undergrowth, then feeding in the trees – blissfully unaware they are relicts of better times. Hopefully proof-positive they are spreading in Wellington and the Hutt Valley. Wellington Botanic Gardens."

Working dog wanted

Jane from Opaki

My husband is looking for a semi retired handy working dog to help him. Needs to be able to work both cattle and sheep. A great home is assured.
