Paddock Diary 2


On Christmas Day, we went for a walk down our long cul de sac of a road, and I heard, then saw, a squadron of parrots flying overhead. Gave me quite a fright, as they were really quite noisy.

It turns out that the Eastern Rosella, an Australian parrot, was introduced to NZ in the 1900s. It seems we have them in the trees near us, as this little fella was perched in the paddock around 10 minutes ago. It isn't a great photo because I had to grab my camera and put it on bazillion zoom quickly.

No wonder Her Gingership was sitting near the gate after tea......
