Lake Opouahi, Kiwi crèche
Every month, a volunteer walks around the outside of the pest-free fence at the Opouahi Panpac crèche. They check for damage or other problems.
Peter and Marilyn did this tour of duty last week on a fine and still day. They found a few minor issues in the mesh and did temporary repairs, and cleared a big overhanging branch which was threatening to provide a bridge for some local enterprising cat.
It was really good to see the result of all the work Phil Kay has put in this year, with the missing rivets in the hood of the fence all replaced and the previous repairs all holding up.
The highlight had to be meeting this little guy who seemed to be fiercely guarding the fence. Marilyn’s six-year-old grandson says he thinks it is just saying hello in gecko language.
We had a great day and enjoyed a coffee at the top looking out over all the hills.
