As is normal this time of year weather fluctuations have resulted in both reasonable rainfalls & strong winds at times.
General observations have been that there is a bit more Salvation Jane than previously, new tree & shrub plantings have gotten off to a good start, a slight overall decline in Rabbit numbers & some of the 2-3 year old trees being damaged by male Kangaroos. Seems to be much more birdlife, a few younger Kangaroos & the first snake for Spring. Plus that constant variety of clouds.
Colour wise the standouts have been green – the green grass of Spring, Yellow – the flowering Wattles and Grey – some of the foggy or misty mornings & evenings. The first of the Wildflowers are visible now and look set to put on a wonderful display.
The sounds have been dominated by birds, most of whom I cannot recognise by their sounds.
A few more people have told me they have been for a walk on Tracks 1 & 2. As always, I hope visitors get a sense of the uniqueness of this general area.
