Once again I visited the Terrick Terrick National Park recently to help with a research project involving grassland bird species. However, there is more to these grasslands than birds. Much more.
The Red Swainsonia (Swainsonia playiotropis) is a rare native pea species found in these grasslands.
Another Pea species, Broughton Pea, (Swainsonia procumbens).
Another rare species that I haven’t seen before:
Annual Buttons (Leptorhynchos scabrous).
The Annual Buttons with a keen conservationist in the background.
Mark Antos is also taking photographs of the Annual Buttons.
Returning to the ute without a grassland bird. A bird in the hand is worth more than two in the Terrick Terrick grasslands.
