Likely the result of a hangover. We've all had 'iffy' squid at some point in our lives, haven't we? ;)

I just thought it was typical slow news day in NZ, so glad it made news elsewhere around the world.

That huffy walk off reminded me of a cat after an inelegant landing, strutting away with head in the air, like nothing happened and hoping nobody noticed.

Just found this post (of 4 days ago) from Ranger Sharyn on the doc.govt.nz website.


Today the Royal cam chick is 44 days old, a female and has two female chick neighbours, the one next door and the one down the bank.

The Royalcam chick was weighed this morning although we did not see it on the live stream and came in at 3.5kg. This is a healthy weight for a female chick of this age.
I also picked up on Sharyn's link which shows where Mum and Dad get to.

Oh and some barn owls have an egglet.
It is a bit slow to load but it is live.
