The Riverbank Homestay and B&B at Ratty's Landing just five Kilometres from Tutukaka in Northland New Zealand is a nature wonderland.
This Blog is mainly about exploring or discovering the nature around us.

Mrs Spider and Mrs Weta
You have seen these friendly fellows before. Since my previous blog the Nursery Web Spider has now laid and wrapped her eggs. We expect she will vacate the drum for the top of a shrub and build a nursery for the young. See this blog for a previous nursery.
Mrs Weta was found under a pottery head that we have on a stick in the garden. For a tree weta she is huge and fat! Hopefully she is fat with eggs.
