Spotted this tawny frogmouth low down in a black wattle at Mt Leura today. If any regular walkers see a nest please post a photo. ... See MoreSee Less
View of Mount Leura from Manifold Street, c. 1875.
And then again in 1938.
Note the original woodland vegetation in the earlier photograph, and complete absence of trees in the second photograph.
Several of the species that were cleared are now uncommon on the Victorian Volcanic Plains - Silver Banksia, Drooping Sheoak and Sweet Bursaria.
The revegetation you see on the mounts today is thanks to the efforts of volunteers and students over 26 years, using indigenous species.
The reserves provide a valuable habitat refuge for native wildlife in highly modified landscape.

I was so sad to miss this wonderful event due to kids sporting commitments in Bendigo. I always come away having learnt something new.
