What a long day it has been and little reward. Wanted to check all traps on Piccadilly Line and some on Circle Line. Alas so many traps not working properly. No wonder they do not make them anymore. Next week I will have to go back and take them off, send them to Wellington and then wait for new ones. Then I have to go again and put them back on.
Was cold and clowdy too. Christine went to Christchurch because car needs repair so I started early at 9.15. Got back by 3. That is 5 ½ hours mucking around the bush. But it was beautiful. Bellbirds almost all the way. And the bush is growing everywhere. New seedlings coming up.
Then in D27 by the coalmine was my reward: a nice stoat. That counts for 10 possums!
