It was decided to go on a giraffe hunt as there are so many giraffes that have arrived in Christchurch....not the real variety!!
So off on a giraffe hunt we went....to Deans Bush, and sure enough we found not one but five giraffes!!
They are just fantastic...the big one outside is all mosaic and the smaller ones inside the cottage are painted by schools. We wished that we had had the opportunity to have painted one.
|The children who had decorated this giraffe put their names on the necklace that was around its neck|
What else is there to do at Deans Bush ?
Next stop a walk in the bush to listen to all of the birds.
|This area is predator free so we had to walk into a cage then press a button to get to into the bush.|
|Stopping to see if we can hear the birds|
|Stopping again to listen...yes we can hear them !!!|
|Up in this tall tree were two beautiful Wood Pigeons|
|Paradise ducklings...oh so cute...we wanted to have a cuddle!!!|
