Lane Cove Valley – Fungi – 5 April 2017

This was another walk from Thornleigh, down the Great North Walk Track down the Lane Cove River to De Burghs Bridge and the crossing over and along the Riverside Track to Porters Creek and then by road to Macquarie Park Station.

A fair amount of fungi was out. Not as much as I have seen recently at Sassafras Gully at Springwood or at Bola Creek in Royal National Park.

Along the way, I spotted a swarm of ants. They seem to do this when they need to move their nest – e.g. due to a flood, or perhaps when the nest best too big and they need to split it into two.

I also saw a nice cluster of greenhood orchids –

Here is a selection of photos –

More photos are online on my website on this page.
