Yes! Other known sites are still a few days away from opening. It is amazing they are flowering south of the blue metal track which always appears so barren.

Good to see the logo species featured.

Hi P and all Spider Orchid fans
this will be a fantastic season. It would be great if anyone with free time at hand could help with monitoring - revisit known sites to check the presence of population or even numbers; check sites in the vicinity of known sites or choose a new area ...

Happy to help with monitoring sites. There are a number of known sites on Mt Ainslie. Today I visited a site I found approximately five years ago not far from the entrance of Mt Ainslie Dr. Unfortunately I only found a few leaves.

Nice to see they're starting to come out!

Tobias I reckon over the back side where your metal place markers used to be would be going nuts this year with these conditions.

Aaron, If that is up the back from the Fair through the gate, I could not find either markers or leaves there a few weeks ago. Planning to go up there this week.

Yeah I’ll have to go check it out!
