Hi Netters,

               It is six weeks since I moved into my home and my garden list is off and running. House Sparrow, Blackbird, Starling, Goldfinch and Greenfinch started the list followed by at last, a Grey Fantail in the fruit tree. I decided to remove a 6 metre peach tree that was suffering dry rot at the base. Up went the ladder and as I started the bow saw working a raptor was flying about 10 metres above the neighbour’s gardens towards me. A Peregrine Falcon rocketed overhead towards the north and that was a better garden tick. Then an hour later four Swift Parrots flew over heading south, followed by a circling Silver and Pacific Gull.


All the Best

David Siems
