By Mushera hill six miles from Millstreet Town
I worked in all weather cutting tall pine trees down
For to earn a living an easier way

But Spring it was nice by the old bracken hill
With the wildflowers in bloom by the clear babbling rill
And nesting birds sung in the wood and hedgerow
On looking back how fast two decades did go.

The red squirrels they were so lovely to see

Fairburn Ings

Posted Friday 25th September 2009 at 12:52 by birdbrainer
[b]I work part time as a primary school teacher so I have some spare time Lucky me! I visited Fairburn Ings to see the Long Eared Owls that are there every year and found out that they needed volunteers. I thought what better way to get involved and learn along the way? So I met with the visitor centre manager and have worked every Monday morning there for about 6 months. I love it it is so relaxing (most of the time), apart from bank holidays and when the coffee machine starts kicking off!!...

Of course they day I decide to point people to my Waikamoi trip photos PBASE collapses for the first time. Hrm.

I was operating on about 5-6 hours of sleep a night for the last three weeks due to everything connected with the bird survey on Maui.

9/23/09 - Halepohaku

Posted Wednesday 23rd September 2009 at 23:43 by bkrownd
Flowers are appearing on the manane trees at Halepohaku again, and I heard a number of 'apapane there on the way up the mountain this morning.

I have been working hard on getting my Maui/Waikamoi trip photos up, but there are still many to process and add. Most of the plants are going into my usual plant galleries, but I did make a special gallery for the Maui/Waikamoi trip: http://www.pbase.com/bkrownd/maui_wilderness
