Grey Box time

It’s looking like an excellent year for Grey Box. Trees in the district commenced flowering about a month ago and there is now an excellent nectar flow for honeyeaters, lorikeets and hopefully some soon-to-arrive Swift Parrots. I’ve been noticing a slight surge in bird activity in the bush over the past week – flocks of Brown-headed and White-naped Honeyeaters are on the move – the latter species has been conspicuously hard to find over summer.

  1. We have a beautiful Grey Box in flower in Yeats street Castlemaine and the cacophony in the early morning and early evening is a delight.
