The golf course next door has some small patches of native bush beside a few fairways. I constantly endeavour to discourage others from clearing, mowing or cutting firewood in these spots. It’s a bit of struggle – “It’s a golf course, not a wilderness” – but I’m slowly getting there, I think.
Yesterday the first Scarlet Robins for this winter appeared. Wonderful little birds and presumably in decline a bit, due mainly to loss of habitat.
I’ve noticed the Mosquito Orchids are putting on their annual show at present and I came across some Tiny Greenhoods I’ve not seen here before, too. The Tiny’s are well named – hard to find and hard to photograph.
We’ll get the usual Trims, Noddings and Maroons showing later – already some leaves appearing. Gotta keep that bit of bush!
