When I was taking my little girl across the road to the school bus stop, I spotted a big fat bird in the tree that was watching me: A Kererū.

For our non-NZ readers: The kererū is a large bird with irridescent green and bronze feathers on its head and a smart white vest. The noisy beat of its wings is a distinctive sound in our forests. (https://www.doc.govt.nz/nature/native-animals/birds/birds-a-z/nz-pigeon-kereru/)

While not threatened, it’s always cool to watch them. And you wonder how the cute but big fat bird can actually fly. The bumble bee syndrome comes to mind.

Crisp winter mornings are fun to watch with the fog and the clouds moving, building up and disappearing again.

Flood water fun

The first flood this winter has arrived. Usually, we have 2 or more of those events, but this year is the first time we have been having some fun in it. After all, why not?

Winter is officially here

Rain and mild temperatures have led winter to the land. The trees have dropped their leaves and the moss started to grow. Browns and greens and the dominating colours, the red and yellows have almost gone.

Quiet times

While we had no guests, have not been out to see any people and had no coffee other than the home made one due to COVID-19 lockdown level 4 and 3, we fixed a few things around the farm, moved animals around the paddocks and got more feed in.
