smttc; 3, also picked up on the ring.
pdm; 2, good logic.
Rusty; a merit for humour.
cadwallader; 3, Pania was found in a paddock, not Ele's, I guess the bronze value was a bit disappointing for the perps.

GD - my recollection is that Pania was found in a shed at the back of a Napier residential property when Police did a raid for other purposes, probably drugs but possibly other stolen property.

Isn't "Birdsville" Chris Birds' family nickname for Feilding?

GD, Feilding is spelt with an EI not an IE. This from the fact that it was named after a Colonel Feilding nothing to do with a field.

Rusty, I didn't live in the area long enough for that. I wasn't born there!!!

@CB, Ta for that clearly a bit slow, 20 years buying and sellimg in the Feilding Sale Yards and it never registered.
However much red ink for incorrect i before e at school then college was dominant factor.
Apologies to the Colonel and his family.
