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.
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:
This was a wonderful walk. I learned so much and was completely impressed with Elaine and Damian’s wealth of knowledge. I can’t wait until the next walk. Thanks so much!
My partner and I really enjoyed the walk. Damien and Elaine’s knowledge of the plant life and animals in the forest was amazing. Hope to have another walk with them in the future.
