Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

A lovely account of the joy of photographing birds by Rosa Marie.

"A few bird shots taken over the last couple of days! The tuis do feature very heavily in the shots, as they are such wonderful birds to capture, but I have also managed to find redpoles pecking on the grass at school and a lone Rosella! I also spotted a hedge sparrow peering out from the safe haven of a bush. The waxeyes were having a feast in the school compost bin.
Our resident gammy legged blackbird entertained me as he played with his food, a juicy fat worm, then he flew onto the fence to sing to me! He was with us this time last year and we were so thrilled that he came back again this year!"

Put away the lawnmower

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Have you thought of abandoning your lawn. Th Wellington City Council is encouraging people to think about the benefits of meadows.
The council team at Botanic Garden ki Paekākā are putting down their mowers and growing a meadow on Glenmore Lawn (pictured).
Not mowing means less maintenance but also has benefits for the environment. Not mowing saves on petrol and also promotes bio diversity. Bees, insects and caterpillars all love long grass.
What do you think about growing meadows and not cutting lawns?
