Ring out the bells!


The bells of Christchurch Cathedral are ringing out today to welcome yesterday's return of the first godwits to that area, according to Radio New Zealand.

They're turning up in estuaries all around New Zealand (not "my" one, yet) as we speak.

According to a Foxton Beach resident, quoted in today's Manawatu Standard, "They're looking knackered."

Not surprising, given their 11,ooo km non-stop flight from Alaska.
