Yesterday we went to Otari bush our group did a mixture of walking and running a three hour track up and down hill. I thought that a walked and ran well and my fitness levels are high. On the walk we saw kereru and tui and lots of other native birds. We also saw the 800 year old rimu tree.
I didn't have any problems with the walk fitness wise and could've easily done it again.
We walked past cows once and they suddenly stood up and gave up a bit of a fright which sent everyone running.
Nicola lead us the wrong way on a track and we turned round and wandered back the right way.
The terrain really changed from the bottom of the hill compared to the top.
Overall I thought it was a really fun day out and would love to do it again

On the 29th of November, year four, five and six went to Otari for a walk. It was really fun. It was so refreshing and not very challenging because you could spend most of the time talking with your friends. Actually we were not allowed to talk in case we scared the birds away but we did anyway. We saw lots of different types of birds such as Kereru, Tui, Sparrows etc. By Edie
At Otari bush walk me and my friends saw two eels. We were at the picnic spot at the end. One of the eels had bright blue eyes. We fed the eel cheese, salami, crackers and ham and they ate some of it! It was so much fun. Nick.
