The Port Hills are part of the extinct Lyttelton volcano. The highest peak of the Port Hills is called Sugarloaf and has various broadcasting aerials on the top. We walked up from the Sign of the Kiwi. It was cold, but sunny.
There were birds (various finches and swallows), but there weren’t many insects – maybe it was too cold? We did see a very patterned caterpillar though. Wonder what species it is?
