July Bushcare – Back to the Trad

The second month back after the COVID-19 break started with a session of Trad work near the Eucalypt Rd entrance.

Meticulous Trad work in the gully

A whipbird, eastern spinebill, and butcher bird passed by to give us encouragement, but there was no sound from the usual bell miners.

After morning tea the group went for a tour of the outer perimeter to check on the deanei plantings and the drainage issues by the highway.

Most of the deanei seemed to be growing strong, although cobblers peg (Bidens pilosa)  was growing in abundance. It was also good to see that work had started on resolving the drainage problems up by the highway, which will be of great benefit for the local ecosystem.
