      • Rare Native Falcon breeding in Takapu Valley? Looking good
        • 28 Sep 2015
        • Save Takapu Valley
        • We’ve had regular sightings of the rare Native New Zealand Falcon in Takapu Valley over the last few years (and some going back decades), BUT yesterday Rob Suisted (who owns land in upper Takapu Valley) photographed a pair of Falcons –  kārearea (Falco novaeseelandiae), flying together, and vocalising (“ki-ki-ki-ki-ki-ki”), in what appeared to be courting… Read More

      • The Water is Wide – Flooding May 2015
        • 21 May 2015
        • Save Takapu Valley
        • 120 mm of rain in 24 hours, 60 of it in one hour.     There was a fair bit of damage to public infrastructure.  The Wellington water main was undercut in a few places, power poles were washed out and fell over, requiring replacement and relocation. Although this was a pretty epic flood, the… Read More

      • Is the behaviour of NZTA Wellington appropriate for a Government Agency?
        • 9 Apr 2015
