Rifleman nesting at Hereweka - 15th Oct 2013

New Zealand's smallest and relatively rare native bird is nesting in the garden of Hereweka Garden Retreat. We have seen several birds flitting around the garden and to our delight  have a Rifleman nesting on the potting bench in the Nursery.
Our property is one of the few areas on the Otago Peninsula where Rifleman live. We have specially made nesting boxes around the property. This plus Peter receiving some council funding to purchase and set Rat baits has meant that for the first tome in several years we are seeing a revival in numbers of this delightful bird.
