Winter gold

I found the first flowers of Golden Wattle this morning … I’d be keen to hear how this magnificent shrub is faring elsewhere in the box-ironbark.

There was bird action as well – this male Spotted Pardalote in a party of four + Scarlet Robin, White-throated Treecreeper, Buff-rumped Thornbill, Grey Fantail and Yellow-faced Honeyeater providing lots of interest.

    Last Friday saw one Golden Wattle flowering on the Tourist Road in Kalimna Park. There has been a tremendous display of flowering Woolly Wattle (A lanigera) along the Porcupine Ridge Road and Loop Track over the past few weeks.

  2. I was in the Whipstick and there were heaps of golden wattles well out there on Saturday. But only saw the first ones just out on Sunday in Lockwood State Forest.

  3. I, also saw this years first at our place this am also.
