Houw Hoek Pass

This morning Renee and I went to look for Orchids in the recently burnt portion of Houw Hoek pass.  There were masses of the spectacular Satyrium coriifolium as well as left over S. odorum and the ubiquitous Disa bracteata, but we did not see any others.  The area is covered in occasional massed Watsonias and fields of Wachendorfia paniculata.  We also found an area covered with hundreds of Moraeas, so we were not disappointed.  The area needs to be investigated by a proper team and will, I am sure, yield many more species.
