During the last couple of weeks we have seen a plump healthy looking kereru on the powerlines in our street and at the Northboro Road entrance to Northboro reserve today. This is a little unusual as kereru have traditionally been more often seen on the seaward side of Lake road.
Except for a couple of times in past years when they ventured across our street or stopped briefly on a powerline http://creativemomentsimagesblog.blogspot.com/search?q=kereru they just are not seen .
Hopefully this is going to be a more common event. I have always put the reason down to a lack of sightings to not enough attractive food plants nearby. This cannot have changed in such a short space of time.
