Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Rosa Marie has been busy again with her camera.
"I was just thinking that after such a busy week, I needed to get some nature related well-being but it just started pouring! However there is always something to see on our back yard.
Not only did our resident wonky legged Blackbird bring along his offspring to feed juicy worms from our lawn, but a pair of California quails paid us a visit too and enjoyed a good peck around our lawns. Old Wonky legged had a beautiful juicy worm to feed his young but it kept falling out of it's mouth...
Never a dull moment! Awesome to be able to capture all this!"

Wellington Cup still going ahead

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Wellington Cup Day is proceeding, despite Omicron, but it will look very different from previous years.
On Tuesday the Wellington Racing Club said it was working out the details and the numbers would be limited.
Racing club general manager Lucy Doig said it could operate with people in pods of 100.
The always-popular Fashion in the Field will not be hosted this weekend, and all guests and staff must be at least double-vaccinated to be able to gain entry into the venue.

This week we feature a picture from Louise Thomas, who has been to Stewart Island.

"You shall not pass!" she said defiantly standing her ground in the middle of the track. "You can however, sidle past while I stand on this stump." How can something so small be so completely unafraid of the world? South Island robin/kakaruwai (Petroica australis), Ulva Island, 7 January. I guess that makes it P. a. rakiura.
