It was the perfect day for a walk, a little chilly to start but we soon warmed up. Beginning at Haggarts Track we were soon through the trees and out onto the heath with satisfying views all around.
Striding along Haggarts Track
The Common Heath was brilliantly coming into flower and masses of Common Beard Heath as well. We found a few of the rare Juniper Wattle plants flowering and Anglesea Grevillea that was not flowering yet.
Observing Juniper Wattle
There was lots fungi including and unusual Calostoma sp. At lunch we were thrilled to observe two Wedge-tailed Eagles using the currents and circling around us.
Luckily we saw only one trail bike along the track, though plenty of evidence they’d been there, including illegal tracks and about 15 cars with bike trailers parked on Gum Flat Rd. Towards the end of Alladyce Track Margaret found us a single flowering Autumn Greenhood.
It was a really enjoyable walk in good company.
