I spent the day yesterday at Tawharanui checking up on robins. There have been stoat sightings in the park of late and stoats eat robins (and any other birds they can get hold of). Beacause we know pretty accurately what robins are in the park they give a good indication of predation if we suddenly see a lot of them go missing. Although it was a glorious day I spent most of my time in deep gullies where the sun didn’t penetrate. Like walking into a chilly bin but with lots of fungi and lichens, hence the photos.
