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.
It was a sunny May Sunday Morning as we checked out some of the nature around the Riverbank this morning.
Black Shag, White Faced Heron, fungi and Spiders had us marveling.
Black shag and Heron were roosting in the early morning sun at the top of the dead pines. These pines get the first sun in our valley.
The last two photos show a spider web under construction. 33 minutes later it had added another 30 rings. Amazing!
The Fungi, well, unusual and a new one for us.
On Tuesday night at about 9:00pm there was a huge ruckus next door at a male and female Kiwi started calling together. They did so again at about 9:30pm. They were only about 100m from our house and 20 from our neighbours.
It seems that Col the Kiwi has returned to the hole as there is much fresh digging. I have taken the camera back to see if we can catch it.
