Pat's Snaps

At this time of year the guava trees are dripping with berries. We love them and pick and eat them as we work in the nursery. But it's not just us, Kereru come from miles around to feast in flocks of up to a dozen in a tree. All day we hear them crashing into the foliage and taking off with that distinctive whooping wing sound.

Pat is a patient and skillful photographer and she has shared some photos she took this week.

Where'd it go?

Thanks Pat - great pictures.
