We were keen to visit the bush block to check whether the 50+mm of rain recorder at Meredith earlier in the week had made an impact. It hadn’t. Was still a fantastic trip. Someone was limited to yabbying for only 30 mins and we had one dog with us, which made it a lot easier for me to wander off. Everything still looked dry. Penny had a blast exploring.
I haven’t tried to identify these yet. Too much I’m trying to do. Did find macropod bones.
White Eared Honeyeater
I saw this honeyeater towards the end of the visit. I was sitting next to the dam watching Penny when I saw it fly overhead. Part of me was hoping it was a new honeyeater but I was fairly sure it was a white eared. I was able to confirm after checking out a previous post on my blog (still while at the same.) I checked the bird books when I got home and figured out it was a juvenile. I thought so, as the gap looked pink, but apparently the olive head is also an indicator.
A few interesting specimens in the damper areas… but no decent fungi or sundew.
