Hacking Team at Zandvlei Nature Reserve – October 2016.

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

Overcast, cool with rain from the SE at the site. It cleared as the afternoon progressed. The mouth of the estuary was open and the water level was very low.
We had new hackers today, the Radue family William (Dad), Joule, Jaiden, who are also new ZVT members. They got stuck into a stand of lantana and cleared it into a big heap.
Barry came to say hello he is having physio treatment for his back and progressing well. Bert tackled the large trees on the northern boundary and was engaged by a resident from next door welcoming the tree coming down and could he come and chop back some trees on the Mez Wallach property as well. She said that the “no good people use the tree to get over the boundary fence onto their property”.
Robin continued working on the Cape Honey Suckle creeper. He also found a new flower for the site. Will check the name.

We saw 11 species of birds today, the usuals. Small insects are emerging. Caterpillars, instar locusts and grasshoppers.
