Another case of the barrens.
I took shots but they were not what I hoped for. Pauatahanui provided me with a pied stilt and a white faced heron.
Up on Whitireia Park near the radio masts I found a skylark.
Back at ground level, I was coming around the Western side of the Porirua harbour when I noticed a train heading South. I confess to having always been something of a “train-spotter”. This one caught my eye because it was headed by four locomotives. There are parts of the world where this is commonplace. New Zealand however, has a narrow gauge railway system (3’-6” gauge) and the landscape forces it to follow some tight curves. This is not usually conducive to long heavy trains such as those in the US or Australia.
Tomorrow may not be much better as the weather today was atrocious.
