This is the only photo I got before it scuttled away into the grass. You can see a short section of the skink's tail right in the middle of the photo. It will be a common skink or a McCann's skink.

A rare plant in Christchurch gardens (ironically, I see it more often in gardens in Long Beach, California). It does make a nice looking ground cover though.

Description

We went to Mahoe Reserve in Lincoln today, where, remarkably, a tui had been observed on Thursday and Friday. It showed up again, for about half an hour, and sang. See the movie.

It was unbanded, and Laura Molles didn't recognise its song, suggesting that it may have blown in from somewhere in the Southern Alps during the recent westerly storms, instead of being a Banks Peninsula bird.
