We were wrong!

…And we’re quite relieved that we were.

Our report last week about the burning of boronias in the Fryerstown Block 5 management burn has been corrected by Castlemaine Field Naturalists, who have pointed out that the burned area is a small part of the boronia population in that area, the major part of the plants being in an adjacent valley. Meanwhile Bendigo field naturalists have suggested that this plant may benefit from a mild burn: we’re not sure of this, but we’ll watch for possible regeneration in the burned patch with great interest next Spring.

This is one occasion when we’re happy to get off DEPI’s back [temporarily] about its fire practices…
