Local Track Walk - Red Stinkhorn Sighting : My Actifit Report Card: November 4 2021


Wake to a rainy day. Disappointing as I wanted to ride alternate days. I am not a fan of riding in the rain. I pottered the day away doing not a lot. This lockdown has me really down. All I want to do is get out and ride my bike for a few weeks. It looks like the freedom day for the unvaxxed just got pushed back to December 15. Time to break more rules. I am less risk than a vaxxed person doing normal things.

I took the umbrella and walked. First shot is of a dung beetle - not seen one here down under. New buds on bonnet orchid

Then this fungus - red stinkhorn - spreads widely

Bonnet orchid a little further on the track below the track work

Corea opening up more fully

The pink flowers just beginning to open

First time walking this track since the track work was finished. The orchid colonies on the low side of the hill have been wiped out

One orchid survived the track work - photo shows the context

I am guessing that it will be at least two years before we see orchids recover through this sterile clay on the side of the track

Rain drops make for a special photo.

Down the track to see if the tongue orchids are open

Getting close - context for the sole surviving plants this side - in a rock crevasse

Did find a few bearded orchids gone to seed on north side. Only ever seen them on the other side maybe because I always focus on the uphill side

Also a variegated hyacinth orchid on that side

Close up

Was a long walk back to find evidence of orchids on south side - not a lot left but this one is close to opening

Cryptostylis erecta budding. Context photo shows plant high above the track = safe from council workers

It rained a bit - did not find an orchid open but enough to come back. The trackwork really depresses me as a source of great orchids has been set back hard - last count was 18 types.

Dinner: Chicken tandoori with turmeric rice

Trade action: Bought ABN.AS
