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.
