Hello friends and family
We enjoyed a quiet start to the week. The team gathered on Tuesday morning – the first day of level 3 lock down and acknowledged that we had all handled level 4 well and felt confidence that New Zealand was on the right track. We all have family affected economically so understand that the need to get mobile again is urgent.
On Thursday we took the last 2 YEPs in care to the Moeraki colony. One was released and the other is in soft release until his foot is a bit better. His health could easily go backwards if I kept him here on his own. In soft release he can see the ocean and the wild penguins as they come and go fishing.
I heard from my house builders – 22 July is the expected delivery date, so I had better get started clearing the gorse! I will have to wait until level 2 to go there as it is not essential travel. The free rubbish disposal at the tip was too good to last long but I did get rid of 6 bags of rubbish. I will still do my weekly shop on a Sunday anyway.
On Saturday I got 3 Little Penguins that need rehabilitation. I think they will only need a week or so to fatten up and then they will be on their way. The autumn weather has been amazing. I have even got down to shorts and a tee shirt on some days. Today is a jacket and gloves day so far!
Have a great week!
