Description

Large female. She hauled out and rested about halfway up the beach for a while, then climbed into the dunes. Probably the highest I’ve seen a sea lion climb. Blurry photo as taken on full zoom so as not to get too close to her.

Growing in a very shady area so looks unusual. Location approximate but was on the Temple View Track. There were several of these growing in the vicinity. Thanks @john_barkla for the ID!

Description

The leaves of this plant die off at certain times of the year, leaving clusters of brown stumpy mounds. It’s growing in a very wet spot. Not totally sure of the ID and thus happy to be corrected!

Clearly heard the very distinctive call close to a house, in thick trees. As usual, impossible to photograph... first one I’ve heard in Dunedin this summer!

Nesting about 1m off the ground in a grassy bank. No other tree/shrub cover. Adult accidentally disturbed off the nest when we walked past. A testament to the great predator control at Sinclair Wetlands!

This was quite stiff and prickly. It was growing in the intertidal zone. Some sort of marine algae or lichen? @john_barkla can you help?
