Ducklings Galore at Pukaha

Pateke family

We are having a wonderful breeding year for our ducklings so far at Pukaha. 

Our Pateke have each successfully hatched 6 ducklings giving us an  even dozen ducklings.

Our Whio have raised 3 ducklings so far, with another 4 eggs close to hatching.

So far our red-crowned kakariki have been slow to breed but after triple clutching last year we think that they are taking their time this year.

Breadcraft Wild Challenge this weekend

The organisers of the Breadcraft Wild Challenge and Wild Challenge Kids Run are putting together the final details for this Pukaha fundraising event and are calling for those people who may still be thinking about entering to get their entries in by Friday.

Racebags and goodie bags are being collated and while organisers are happy for kids to turn up on the day to register for the Kids Run, they need to be aware that if they haven't pre-registered, their goodie bags won't contain a T-shirt - although one will be sent out to them after raceday.
