Chiltern

15 September 2010

A bit of a sporadic start but while we were given the OH&S sermon a Brown Treecreeper Climacteris picumnus accompanied us on a nearby tree listening intently on the safety precautions. Shortly after starting our search we were threatened by a very mean looking (but cute in a way) puffed up Eastern Bearded Dragon Pogona barbata.

The scenery was lush with numerous flowers blooming, including common orchids, but we were unable to find the rare orchids we were searching for. There were also several patches of Morel fungus Morchella elata
