Spring prowl

A typically strong group rocked up for FOBIF’s October walk on Sunday, expertly and entertainingly led by Elaine Bayes and Damien Cook through the Morgan’s Track area of the Diggings Park. In spite of the dry season there was plenty to see, as the group meandered on and off track in the area of DELWP’s thinning trials.

Damian Cook and some of the group: Damian had just emerged from a nearby dam brandishing some surprisingly appetising bush tucker tasting a bit like a spicy carrot.

Elaine and Damien maintained an easy pace to enable plenty of examination of stuff seen along the way. On show were Grey Everlasting, Matted Bush Pea, Grey Parrot Pea, Small leaved Parrot Pea, Grevillea alpina, Leptorhynchus, Diggers Speedwell, Heath Tea Tree, Bendigo Wax, Sticky Everlasting…plus a minuscule Common Froglet, and a surprisingly unfazed Tree Dragon. Here’s a selection of photos:
