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.

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.
