We are having some wonderful sunny days so it was time to get out into our community and see what is happening out there.

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 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!!!

George and Luke having a turn at being front leaders 

We all sat to watch the family of Paradise ducks. The parents were SO protective of their babies.
They wouldn't let any other duck near them ...if they came near the parents would chase them away!!!
It was a bit scary at times!!!

If you haven't been to Deans Bush we all suggest you take a visit is so peaceful .
We are so lucky to have such a special place like this in our city to go to.
