The first Kowhai flowers. Did all the traps on the island today. Three hours! Nothing but one hedgehog! So now all ready again with fresh apple and waiting for the possies if there are any left. The Kowhai will now bloom until nearly end of October providing lots of nectar for the bellbirds. Of course the possums are after them as well but with so many gone now there should be plenty left for the birdies.
