Six of us set out on the Zig-Zag path up to the back slopes of Mosselberg in search of the elusive Black Orchid or Acrolophia ustulata. We did not find it but saw many Satyrium stenopetalum and an occasional Disa cylindrica and Ceratandra atrata.
The main feature of the morning, however, was the gale force wind which nearly had us off our feet at times. I reckon it must have been gusting at around 100 km per hour and we really had to brace ourselves to remain upright! It also made for a cold outing, so it was surprising to note how warm it became on the way down when we got out of the wind.
