"I used to avoid posting photos where I had accidentally captured a nictitating membrane - I thought they looked like weird sausage-skin sideways eyelids. Then I read that they are amazing built-in bird goggles, so the bird can blink and still see, or even shutter their eyes in extreme conditions to protect their eyes while flying or diving. Apparently we used to have them too - the pink blob in the inner corner of our eyes is a vestigial membrane. I suppose we evolved out of needing them - still they might have been handy the other day when I was trying to take photos on the beach during a gale. Pūkeko/purple swamphen (Porphyrio melanotus) at Waimanu Lagoon."

Is your broadband bill about to increase? Don't throw money away.

Spark have recently announced a price increase of $3 - $5 a month for new and existing broadband customers and other providers seem likely to follow suit.

Information collated by our research team has found that tens of thousands of Kiwis are still missing out on hundreds of dollars of savings each year on their broadband bill, because they are failing to shop around for cheaper broadband plans.

We estimate that over 500,000 households would be able to pay less for their broadband each month but many consumers are unaware of the fact that they could be making these savings and people often don’t know where to start when looking for a change in broadband plan or provider.

This is where NZ Compare can help. Our websites are simple to use and if you need more help, our friendly, Auckland based, customer support centre can advise on the most suitable broadband plan for your needs and help talk you through the switch. With unlimited fibre broadband plans available for less than $60 a month why would you pay more?

Find out more at NZ Compare or call the team on 0508 226672

CORRECTION: This post has been amended to clarify that the price of fibre and copper broadband internet services will increase, and that the increase is between $3 and $5 a month, not only $5 a month on fibre broadband plans as previously posted. (Amended at 10.31am, June 23, 2022)

The weather didn't phase the fantail/pīwakawaka (Rhipidura fuliginosa), plenty of moths, midges, and spiders still to grab and other beings to investigate."

Hello,

GBRAI received from WCC notification that due to ongoing sickness amongst the recycling contractors, there will be no glass collection this week in wider Kingston/Mornington/Brooklyn. So unless you want to take a trip to the recycling centre at the council run Southern Landfill, in the Landfill Precinct, best you store the glass until Wednesday 13th of July.

Joys of winter ills inflicted on our recycling services again unfortunately


"Kia ora,

We are writing to update you on our recycling collections - please share this information with your community and networks.

Unfortunately, our waste collection contractors are once again operating at reduced capacity due to COVID-19. As a result, glass collections will be put on hold from Monday 27 June for an estimated two weeks.

Rubbish and co-mingled recycling collections will be prioritised, but delays are likely.

For health and safety reasons, residents should bring their glass crates back inside off the street until normal service resumes. In the meantime, they can stockpile their glass or drop it off for free at the Recycling Station at the Southern Landfill. Otherwise, glass can be wrapped and put in general rubbish.

We apologise for this disruption and will be in touch again soon with another update.

For the latest updates on collections and rubbish and recycling processing, please visit our website.

Ngā mihi,
Waste Operation"
