275 – Sculptural renovations

Para Matchitt’s masterwork – the City to Sea Bridge – has recently had a very worthy update and face-lift with the addition of another bird form on the southern side. I rather like the head part, however the wings and tail are also rather better than the tatty old pieces. I assume the work has been completed by the artist.

Wellington has a fantastic range of birds to be spotted. There’s always a fine range of sea birds to be found along the waterfront, especially after a winter gale – a little bit of shelter and accessible food to be snapped up. A few meters away the land based birds start with the usual introduced species – pigeons, sparrows, starlings, and very quickly the native species can be seen – tuis, fantails, and more. It’s such a joy.

Over time I want to grow our garden into an ever more native bird friendly site. Some explanations may have to be sent to the local cats – a high speed delivery mechanism may be required.

Manifesto
28. Every day you will be tested.
31. Every day mend bridges, bury hatchets, say sorry and move on.
49. Every day is a good day.
