A little field trip with ANOS
inside the sealed section of
the now disused Beaconsfield Reservoir. To begin with a conclusion, we all liked the sealed section.
Being primarily an orchid hunt, we found primarily orchids,
though, as might be expected at this time of year, more leaves than flowers.
Though we still found three species properly in flower (I'm not counting the other midge),
with many Pterostylis sp. aff. parviflora around.
It was generally a drier forest area, so not much fungus, but I was surprised by the number of
butterflies around in mid autumn (I only saw Meadow Argus).
At least I noticed them.
