Things seem to have gone a little flat.
Nevertheless I went out more in hope than expectation, and went over towards the Okowai lagoon near Porirua. The Northern part of the lagoon was totally devoid of life. The water level was low and everything seemed to be covered in some sort of fibrous residue. A heavy log which seems to be a shelter for pied stilts at some times of the year was the most interesting object to be seen.
Behind me, Colonial Knob was clear, and I could see the compound from which I had shot my images on Monday.
On the track beside the lagoons that leads up to Aotea College, the toetoe (Cortaderia splendens) plumes were blowing about and were nicely backlit.
On the way home, I went around Gray’s road and spotted a significant flock of masked lapwings (formerly known as spur-winged plovers) (Vanellus miles). Unfortunately , they spotted me before I was in position, so you see here the North end of a South-bound flock.
And that’s the day.
