North-West Victoria - Day 3

23 October 2011

Lots of driving again today and we headed into Wyperfeld National Park looking for more orchids. We searched an area that supposedly had about a dozen cages five years ago but we only found about 6 or 7 cages and only one had an orchid in it (and a bud at that).

In the afternoon I went around looking for things and by a dam I found some Inland Rintail damselflies Austrolestes aridus, a species I had only seen for the first time last year. In the evening I saw a couple of frogs on the rode near Beulah — I've since been able to identify them as Limnodynastes dumerili: Eastern Banjo Frog or Pobblebonk.
