Rails and Rats

It is always a joy to see Rails in our wetland. 

We poison bait, trap and all that. Still have rats. Always will have them but maybe a few less.

Today - Saturday May 4th

William Parata Wellington Reserve - Dolphin Place, Tutukaka
A tight blue balloon stretched over the sky with a few cloud pictures on it. It was a stunning day.
We walked up to the trig on the William Parata Wellington Memorial Reserve off Dolphin Place.
This site has the best coastal view  in the area. On a clear day one can see from Cape Rodney to Cape Brett, Great Barrier Is, Mokohinau Islands, The Poor Knight Islands, Maro Tiri Islands, Taranga and Hauturu. Pretty amazing.
