More from Tullaroop

It wasn’t just the lorikeets drawn to the flowering eucalypts at the Tullaroop Reservoir Picnic Area last weekend. A variety of honeyeaters, and even an Australian Magpie were fossicking amongst the blossoms for a meal. I’m not certain, but the tree looks most like a Lemon Scented Gum Corymbia citriodora to my eyes. There are a number of nice specimens in the reserve.
