Last year there were lots of these on the Road Reserve but they were destroyed - old style thinking that "toadstools" need to be gotten rid of. I found this single survivor further up the road. It appears on the Fungi Oz site as an unidentified Australian Russula.
It is a real concern that these foxes are there. This small wetlands has allowed breeding to occur of several species of water bird. I have sighted Hard heads, Australasian grebes, Eurasian coots, Black swans, Purple swamp hens, Plovers, both Black and Little pied cormorants, Grey teal, Chestnut teal, Darters, Dusky moorhens, Straw-necked ibis and Australian white ibis.
A fuzzy photo taken by a colleague today with a point-and-shoot camera of a flowering male Pimelea spinescens plant at Mount Cottrell, with what appears to be a pollinator in action. In another image the insect has its head inside the flower. Pollinators for Critically Endangered Spiny Rice-flower are not yet known, so we'd love to know what this creature is, at least to family if possible.
