Cape Barren Geese Heathcote Valley Chch

Postby bdarlow » Sun Aug 05, 2018 3:49 pm

This afternoon four Cape Barren Geese in a paddock of the Bridle Path Riding School, Heathcote Valley, Christchurch. Might be easier to see from the footpath off Truscotts Road - Ferrymead Park Road that goes between the ponds and the riding school fields. I did get a couple of (very grainy) pictures which I will post when I get a chance. Brian
