Hello friends and family
The week started off with glorious weather and even weeding was a pleasure. On Tuesday that changed, and we got 8 mm of welcome rain. I decided to go on a wild penguin chase for the day, so Robbie did the rounds on his own and saw 28 penguins here and 8 at the Moeraki colony. They do like to stay home on a rainy day!
It was back out in the reserves on Thursday. We released another penguin so are now down to 5 in care. In the afternoon we continued with preparing for sheep in the Moeraki reserve, in glorious sunshine. It was so nice, I started on the rock moving in Robbie’s rehab. This involves throwing all the rocks out of the pen, lifting the grates, waterblasting everything and then returning it to normal, ready for next season.
Friday was also glorious, so I was motivated to continue cleaning. Let’s hope it lasts until the job is done. Yesterday I did the rounds with Hiltrun and walked home from the Moeraki colony. There are a few penguins at home, mostly relaxing.
Have a great week!
