      A somewhat less-than-typical North Wellington Zephyr…

    Haha Bluey must be holding on by the skin of his toenails.
    Bet your washing gets dry in nano seconds bro.

    What a wind! Zephry wind …Zephyr may refer to a light wind or west wind. ???

    Don’t go outside in that wind bro, till you had a feed! or wear concrete shoes. 😉

      The washing tends to end up wound around the line and stays damp in the middle, of course (been there, done that, all part of living in Wellington)

        Hettie is a daily visitor, morning and night. She noticed the ducks and pukekos being fed and would swoop down and hop about between then, dashing in, nicking what grains, and flying or hopping out of the way.

        Quite a gutsy little lady, but a thief :/

        Within a day or two after she first did this. her local marae mates all turned up, perching in the tree overhead.

        So soon I was dropping a row of seeds into the flower box so they could also flit down onto the fencetop, line up along the side look around, then hop into the flower box, and next second reappear, seed in beak, and fly back up into the tree.

        The constant quacking and squawking in the background is Daphne Duck, a very demanding customer who thankfully now seems to have taken her business else where.

          Also, the high pitched “ee-yip” you can hear is Sweety the pook. Aspen & Bluey have louder & slightly lower-pitched voices.
