Salvation

G’day,
I made some remarks in an earlier post regarding the need for private conservation efforts to restore and preserve some of our ecosystems. Have a look at this place….

This is just a very small part of Peach Flat, a private holding north of Briagolong. Duncan and I visited the property today and were treated to a guided tour by the owners, Michelle and Rod. As Duncan says here, to say we were impressed is a complete understatement.

I reckon the best bit is that the place won’t be ‘locked away’. These incredibly enlightened people want to share this resplendent environment with others. Just wonderful!


Michelle and Rod, thank you. What’s that? Would we mind doing some bird surveys on the property? Oh alright, we might be able to fit something in.

Regards,
Gouldiae

  4. Hi Gouldiae.
    Funny thing there. I read your comment as "should R & M WARM the odonata". Naturally I assumed it was a kind of mulled wine, or similar.
    Wikipedia set me right.
    Hope you find the Damsels and Dragons to be in good form. Looks like a wonderful pond to explore.
    Have fun, guys.

  5. Denis,
    Odonata have a similar effect to mulled wine on DF. Yeah, beaut spot and such enlightened owners.
