    • Yes, it varies from day to day. Usually, the UK is not the country with most visits, but recently it is, because of the Thatcher Downing Street pedophilia issue. When my blog was still at Blogsome, usually about 40% of visits were from the USA. Now, it is about 25%.


  1. I’m the New Zealander!!!
    I get to hang out with some of the wildlife you post about. We have korimako (bellbirds) and tui just by our verandah and lots of other native birds around. In a couple of weeks we’re going on a special outing to meet the short-tailed bats you recently posted about (our first time meeting bats). And if that doesn’t make you jealous here’s me (behind camera) with wife and daughter meeting a baby seal that was on it’s way back from playing in a waterfall.


    • Hi Kieran, I surely know there is also Valerie Davies and others in New Zealand 🙂 I don’t know exactly how the WordPress counter works. It does not count a blogger’s own visits. Maybe it does not count subscriber’s visits either.


      • These are NZ Fur Seals. Their numbers have made a fantastic recovery in the last 50 years, and they are now a fairly common site. This place, the Ohau Stream next to Ohau point is special and rare though because the young come up the stream to play in the pool below a waterfall and get away from the adults (there are actually lots of youtube videos of this). Don’t think I’ve ever seen a sealion except perhaps as a kid. Forest and Bird warning about extinction is alarming. We seem once more to have increasing numbers of endangerment, whilst those species to which we have been devoting great energy (such as Kakapo, Takahe, Black Robin, Kiwi) are almost all still threatened. My favourite bird of all, the Kea, seems to be declining drastically in numbers and the economic suffering of the poor seems to be taken as licence by the rich to plunder and destroy.
        Check out this video of Denniston (amazing place – visited about 6 months ago)


        • Hi Kieran, thanks so much for your extensive information! I was in New Zealand once, especially the sub-Antarctic islands; and was lucky to see sea lions at the Auckland islands.
