Mother Browns Bonnet 2021

Tuesday 28 September 2021 It was a pleasant Spring day with very little wind and ample sunshine. Initially we walked, around the buildings, peering through the windows. Although lots of Spanish Heath was visible it seemed to cease once we got into the bushland, fortunately or perhaps from the efforts of the Wildcare group that work at Woodvine. Flowers were good and especially wattles in damper gullies and a low growing species on the top of Mother Browns Bonnet. The open grassy areas near the top were also striking and it is assumed were natural due to thin topsoil.  Hibbertia Edge of an opening on the top Dense low Wattle  on summit area of Mother Browns Bonnet More Photos here.

Chauncy Vale Sept 2021

Thursday 23 September 2021 The walk was the Guvys Lagoon returning via the caves.   The lagoon for once was filled almost to the maximum.  After morning tea near there we retraced our steps to the caves junction and walked back to the start that way.   Although it was a windy day, it was not a lot of it getting into this sheltered valley.  The calm water in the Guvys Lagoon photo testifies to that.   Just a few hundred metres in from the entrance to Chauncy Vale Wildlife Sanctuary there is a building with wide verandas and  we had a barbecue here.  Towards the end of the meal the sun got blocked by clouds and  a cool breeze encouraged us not to linger.   Guvys Lagoon Sticky  Boronia (Boronia anemonifolia ) A photo album is here.
