Kereru at Shoestring Cottage

One thing which surprised us when we moved in to Shoestring Cottage was the abundant bird life, considering that it is only metres from the main street.  But on the day when we heard the distinctive sounds of native wood pigeons' wings we were overjoyed.  To see these birds feasting on the fruits of the ornamental cherry tree was very special, especially as they seem to have no fear of humans and feed contentedly without appearing notice the people so near.
