01/03/23 Flora survey: Yellingbo

Notes from: a Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater hosted citizen science event.
It's a time of year when there's not a lot flowering in the Yellingbo Nature Conservation Area bush, but that didn't dull our enthusiasm! On a mild, still day our purpose today was to record the summer orchids before they go into their dormant phase at a site where Monash Uni reptile surveys will happen this year. We're mapping the summer flowering orchids, to ensure they're protected. Hyacinth Orchids, Large Tongue-orchids, Onion Orchids, Caladenia's and Elbow Orchids were recorded. There were beautiful butterflies on the wing and ants busy shifting mulch to lay around their kingdom's entry holes in the ground. With heads down scanning the ground and friendly chatter it was a joy to be out in the bush with a fabulous group of volunteers, taking it all in, whilst achieving something purposeful. Thank you team. Great job!!
