Exploring Akaroa harbour, 15–16 June 2013

We spent the weekend in Akaroa, first celebrating Cynthia Roberts' birthday with a cruise on the harbour on the Canterbury Cat followed by lunch at French farm, and then a rainy day spent on Smith Street with ECan ecologist Phil Cochrane banding tui.

On the harbour, we made it all the way around to the otherworldly Scenery Nook, with its massive vertical dyke jutting out into the sea. The captain mentioned that a yellow-eyed penguin had been spotted here in a previous week but we didn't see it.

I've uploaded my species photos from the trip to NatureWatch NZ and will add all of my standard bird, butterfly, and plant counts once the iNaturalist trip functionality is finished.

Action Geology!
