The Birds Auckland group has been driving past regularly to check on the male swan that was shot with a crossbow in Auckland's Western Springs.

The group painted the bird's head yellow so they can watch over its welfare.

The swan was earlier reunited with its partner and cygnet after a crossbow bolt was removed from its chest and the animal was treated with antibiotics.

If you notice any future problems with the swan, phone Birds Auckland on 09 256 7300

A series of accusatory hand-written notes have been delivered to residents of Harbourside Drive following Sunday’s vandalism of several trees.

Locals are feeling “absolutely disgusted” at the suggestion that they are behind the incident, which involved a vandal felling eight street pōhutukawa trees with a chainsaw.

Paul and Sue Wilson, who have lived on the road for over 10 years, arrived home on Monday from a trip to Waiheke Island to find a line of felled trees and a curt hand-written note in their letterbox.

Fun Indoor Rainy Games To Play

Oh oh, it's raining...now to have some fun!
Arm & Leg Tag is the classic chase game with a twist: every player is “it” and the goal is to tag each person’s arms and legs. When a player’s arm or leg is tagged, they can no longer use it, so they’ll have to put their arms behind their back or hop on one leg. Tagging any other part of their body is allowed, but it doesn’t count towards anything. When all four limbs have been tagged, players are out of the game, and the last player standing with at least one arm or leg wins. Arm & Leg Tag is easy to play indoors, just watch out for furniture or sharp edges.

In As Seen on TV, one player (usually the parent) serves as the “TV” and acts out what’s on the “screen.” Give one child the remote (real or pretend), and ask them to flip through the channels until they land on what they want to watch. Once they pick their favorite program, which could be anything from a cartoon to a sports game to a commercial, they’ll announce their choice and the TV will have to act it out. As the TV, you can use any props at your disposal, but you have to be every character on the show. After 10-15 seconds, ask the player with the remote to change the channel and pick a new show for the TV to act out. Once kids get the idea of the game, they can swap in to play the TV.

Story Cards lets you craft an original story using homemade picture cards. Cut each sheet of 8.5″ x 11″ paper into 10 playing cards and draw a single item on one side of each. The items can be any person, place, or thing, but it helps to make them specific and personal. Shuffle up the deck and begin picking cards from the top to tell a story. The stories don’t have to make sense, and it might be challenging to find connections between cards, but that’s part of the improvisational fun.

New guardian watches over miners City Rail Link Mt Eden

A new guardian will watch over workers preparing to mine the first 50 metres of tunnel at Mt Eden for the City Rail Link.

A new guardian will watch over workers preparing to mine the first 50 metres of tunnel at Mt Eden for the City Rail Link.

In the spirit of mining tradition, a statue of St Barbara, the patron saint of miners, was blessed in a dawn ceremony and placed in a shrine near the tunnel entrance.

Ceremonies like this have been repeated worldwide for centuries wherever people go to work underground, said Francois Dudouit, project director for City Rail Link's Link Alliance.

"St Barbara is their guardian and her presence gives assurance that they will be safe below ground."

A statue of St Barbara also watches over workers building the Karangahape underground station.

The saint was an early convert to Christianity who was discovered hiding underground and killed by her pagan father.

Work will start shortly mining the first 50 metres of tunnel at Mt Eden to accommodate the project’s Tunnel Boring Machine.

The machine will excavate the tunnel up to the new Aotea underground station in central Auckland.

Aucklanders will get the chance to see the Tunnel Boring Machine at a public open day being held at Mt Eden early next month.

More details will be announced in mid-November.
