Last Wednesday evening I went up to the Blade at about 6.45 to listen for Ruru (Morepork) for an hour. This is the fourth time, twice before we used Ditrac to kill rodents, once after. I had heard no Ruru at any of those times.
I heard two after about 20 minutes from different directions. They repeatedly called every five minutes. Then about 7.30 I heard four all calling together, slightly separated, and from different directions. The another two, closer and new directions.
So I came home so happy believing that we have at least six birds within hearing of the car park.
