I love birding
Anne wasn't enjoying herself and the birding was poor. One out of 29 isn't too bad.
This was at Miranda in New Zealand looking for shore birds.

The one in the water is also a wandering albatross.

We were on a pelagic trip, fancy name for going out to sea in a small boat to look at birds, and this is one of fmany species we saw.
It is in the albatross family. A very large bird.

Pukeko in the flowers
Back in Auckland after a great trip to the south island.
This pukeko was feeding in a field next to the road.

We fhad to climb what seemed to be a mountain to see this bird. Considering Anne's bad ankle and my bad knees it was an effort, but worth while.
Bit of an attitude

Amazing how large they are.
Luggage finaly caught up with us.
On the flight over I kept humming John Foggerty's song Put Me In Coach (I can play centre field)
Why would I want to go from Bussiness class to coach?
