Lemon Migrant butterflies swarming.

Photo a little blurred but swarms of the Lemon Migrant flock a senna bush.

Masses are swooping around the gardens chasing each other before one drops to the ground and another follows. never seen so many before the fires.

Garden bouncing back.

 

Less humid , cooler at night for better sleep .The bursitis in my left shoulder has eased and I have climbing burnt out banks and transplanting, blue Quandong, that are popping up through out the gardens. Scattering lomandra seeds along water courses and pulling out the odd lantana.

Its like Christmas each time I climb to a burnt out site to see whats sprouting. Lots of red, pencil and white cedar with many others.

Now for more regular rain for the next cycle. No predictions at all.

Fire maps.

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-02-19/australia-bushfires-how-heat-and-drought-created-a-tinderbox/11976134

Yesterday we toured the fire tracks here, to view new growth, rain forest seedlings emerging and others, like the tobacco tree which is prolific. We removed the tobacco seedlings around red cedars emergence.

A lot of follow up ahead when the days are less humid.

Over 500 mls of rain.

One extreme to the other here. Trees fallen across my access, chain saw decided it had enough so hand saws to the rescue.

Fluro fungi glow at night. 

Flooded in for 2 days………..humidity high and the lack of visible insects and butterflies and moths.
