Hello friends and family
We did get a few days with no penguins in care but on Thursday the call came from Peter to say there was a penguin just north of the Moeraki Boulders. Robbie and Elaine were the rescue team, and they safely delivered a 3 Kg fledgling into care.
The storms this week have mostly passed us by, and it is too dry to be planting trees. The penguins are staying out at sea and only seal pups are seeking fame on the webcam. The workers down at the neck are getting a great run of weather to build the stockade which is progressing well.
On Friday the wind came up so I took the opportunity to start the annual accounts and got the first 9 months done.
Yesterday was a glorious winter day. I went to the Bluffs in the morning to do some weed control; and in the afternoon, walked the coast. In the 10 minutes it took me to travel down Lighthouse road, I passed 7 cars going the other way, even though there is now a big sign at the start of the road saying the reserve is closed.
Have a great week!
