Great news! Today, the 15 September 2015 we spotted our first tui in our Cultural Gardens by the classrooms. The tui was busy sipping nectar from the kowhai tree. We have seen tui in our school gully but this is the first time we have seen them in the school grounds by our classrooms. The kowhai tree has been in this garden for a long time, so the reason we are seeing one now is probably because there is enough food for them to travel along the native tree corridors of our river and gully systems. This was very exciting.
