Hello friends and family
We got a taste of spring this week with temperatures over 10 degrees and light winds. On Tuesday I went to the Bluffs with Robbie, and we checked all the traps and collected the Warratah puller to lend to the contractors here.
Wednesday was my day at the Toptip, and the sunshine brought the locals out, so it was very social. I even turned over $50 so that was worthwhile too.
On Thursday we did the rounds and then Jan and Robbie went to the Bluffs in the afternoon. Elaine walked Katiki Beach, and I faffed around! The highlight was having Mr 166 at home. Nice to see a real penguin! In the afternoon, I weed sprayed and straightened up a couple of Kowhai trees.
Some jobs are a long way from penguin work so on Friday I cut tree circles, mowed the lawn and washed the car. It is going in for a service and I am too tight to pay them to wash it!
I booked the Moeraki Hall for our Penguin Rescue AGM
Saturday 17th September at 3 pm – put it in your diaries.
Have a great week!
