Touching the boards on the jetty.
There was a lot of plopping going on as fish leapt to catch insects. 2 circles where the fish have plopped back in. Smaller ones were jumping right close in. I think the very full moon may have had something to do with the amount of activity I was seeing and hearing.
This pied Stilt or Poaka was circling and growling at me to go away. At last exhausted he landed and kept up the warning calls. See the red legs. I wonder where the nest is?
As I walked back up the hill to the house the very full moon was rising.It's the closest it ever comes ( perigee ). It certainly looked large and impressive.
This morning I went back in daylight to see how high the tide was.
This show the current as the tide comes in.
Slightly higher than I saw last evening.
Up on the bottom flat grass just a bit. A 2.1 metre high tide.
