It is difficult to get any accurate information about the tsunami that resulted from today's earthquake centred on the Kermadec Islands. But I did find a measurement from Norfolk Island of a wave measuring 64 cm in height.

Extrapolating from that, using the relative distances, converted to the circumference of the expanding wave, I have calculated the height of the wave reaching Whangarei at 92 cm, which could conceivably do some damage very close to the shoreline.

Taken just off the side of the road. Trying to find wild things amongst civilization.

I feel a little bad for not posting any photos for so long, but the here in is very gray. Neither sunshine nor snow and I do have a very hard time taking photos in such conditions 😅

On the other hand: If you have tips on what to shoot in overcast weather, enlighten me, please ^^

My neighbor's chickens don't like to sleep in their coop, but in the pear and cornel trees in the backyard :D

Call your doctor if you experience double wigeon.

There were SO MANY wigeons at the pond that day. A lot of the males were making this whistling sound like a squeaky toy and making a big display of flapping their wings. Duck waving, I suppose you could call it.

The males' heads also had this green iridescence, but I couldn't capture it.
