GeoLurking pointed to interesting activity at New Zealands Ruapehu volcano.
You can view this for yourself on GeoNet Ruapehu
Or directly at http://www.geonet.org.nz/images/volcano/drums/ch/fwvz/10/drum.png but the drums seem to have stopped for the moment.
More info on this volcano is found on the GVP site Ruapehu
