    That is not all that big. I wouldn't have thought you would feel it being 150 + K's south of there.

    Dundee they are saying on the Herald website that it was a 5.2 centred at Tokoroa that made buildings sway in Hawkes Bay. I used to live in Tokoroa between the age of 6 and 18 and you wouldn't want an earthquake to cause problems at the chlorine plant at the Kinleith mill.

    Yes but 5.2 is shit loads bigger than 2.9. There are lots of old concrete dams on the Waikato that would have been bloody close to that epicentre (Ohakuri, Atiamuri, Whakamaru, Mangakino etc). Hope your younguns did the drop cover hold thing well.

    Possom trapper went for a wander the other day and counted 23 hares.
    We went up the track tonight with slug gun and back up me took the .22 and we saw two but no chance of a shot.
    Been having probs with pestie starlings nesting in roller door of vat stand,so I've been changing from .22 too shotty now and then and I managed to drop one with the .22 into the gum trees but these buggers work in teams.
    There were two more dumping nearly a hay bale a day coming in,got one with the shotty yesty.
    More mess in there today so I set a leg hold trap in the roller door and get back from the river tonight and Possom trapper said I got one so he disposed of it with VC's rifle. The tall bugger couldn't reset it tho as I wanted the most sensitive trap too kill these pests and it was a mission itself on setting a leg hold trap loaded and placing in the roller door.I dropped it twice tonight still got fingers but will set it tomorrow.

    Its not a feed problem Dougie but the milk company have issues about nests around the milk supply.

    Don't think you would like milk with bird shit or hay in your coffee.

    When I was 6 I was given a wornout already bsa slug gun and told to shoot every bloody starling on the place.(well before the pc brigade)They used to nest in the shed and shit all over the machinery and workbenches.
    I was given strict instructions not to shoot any fantails/tuis/pigions(and when i say strict my old man was not to be disobeyed)
    They used to land in a plum tree before ducking in and out of the sheds building nests/feeding young.
    Naturally they were very flighty after a while and one evening I lined up a Starling in that plum tree at a fair old range and knocked it down.I was stoked till I went to pick it up, and discovered it was a tui I actually cried im not ashamed to say(hey I was 6) and gave it a proper burial. It was facing away and looked like a Starling.
    I told my Dad when he come home from his weeks work away fully expecting to go cut myself a switch(im not kidding) and instead he said "youv learnt a valuable lesson boy,Identify your target". Its stuck with me ever since. Both the fact that I killed a beautiful creature I never wanted to harm.And those calm words when I expected a hiding.
