Hacking Team at Zandvlei Nature Reserve – May 2012.

This is a working relationship with the City of Cape Town and the Zandvlei Trust.

Today we decided to tackle the Spanish Broom plants, we missed or had not treated correctly about 2 years ago when we worked here, on the sharp bend of Old Boyes Drive.
Robin, Barry, Bert, Bowen, Sue and Milan discussing what a pleasant day it was to be here today. There were a few new seedlings including small palm trees as well. It was a lovely sunny autumns day with a little breeze. A number of longleaf acacia seedlings were starting to sprout in previously cleared areas further down the road.

The geophytes are also appearing, which will be interesting to see what comes up, previously smothered by the invasive canopies.
Dotted Border butterflies were present as well as the odd Autumn Brown flying over the grasses.
A Peregrine Falcon scattered feral pigeons, doves and starlings in all directions when it came to see what was available for afternoon tea.
