When we started our walk in Fernkloof this morning we had nine participants. Two dropped out quite soon and then, half way up Adder’s Ladder, we lost three more, so there were four of us left to complete what was a lovely walk . It was pretty humid, but the day was mild and we completed our round trip by descending back to the Visitors’ Centre via Kanonkop. A new app on my phone confirmed that we had walked exactly 8 kilometres. It was slow but steady. Regrettably the birds that I wanted to see did not reveal themselves, so I will just have to keep trying!
Tritoniopsis lata was the flower of the day, with many throughout the area covered. Sadly, the drought is taking its toll and a number of plants looked severely stressed. Thanks Sandy, for naming the Empodium and Indigofera!
