It was great to have Justin and his Jobs for Nature crew from Maungaharuru Tangitu Trust come to clear the lake track at the Opouahi kiwi crèche.
There has been so much rain lately that the grass and other growth on the track was rampant and we needed it cleared for the summer visitors. The upside of all the rain is that the chicks in the crèche are stacking on weight.
This is great, as we may have another dry period over summer.
At one point, Marilyn spotted four kereru all landing in the same tree. They were probably fleeing the noise of the scrub cutters.
