New Field Guides

I have two new field guides (and another on back-order). My thanks to Damien Michael who contacted me a few months ago suggesting I might be interested in his ‘Reptiles of the NSW Murray Catchment’. This is my first proper reptile field guide, and I’m sure it will come in very handy. The ‘Mosses of Dry Forests’ may see less use, but I do find mosses fascinating, and am looking forward to learning a bit more about them.

This month’s field visit was to The Rock Nature Reserve. The Rock is one of those regional landmarks that I’ve grown up familiar with, but never actually visited, so I decided to fix that. It’s another location now firmly on the ‘I must revisit’ list – not least because I really want to climb all the way to the top sometime.

June 2015 Field Visit – Kindra State Forest

In an effort to make up for not getting out in April and May I have already posted entries about two field trips I made earlier this month to Narrandera Common and Mulligans Flat, so go check those out if you haven’t already. However, this is the actual official Monthly Field Visit for June 2015. Today I went to Kindra State Forest near Coolamon.
