2016-03-24 NW Cliff Way - Judith giving some background infoAfter rain most days for weeks, we had a clear bright morning to enjoy the walk with Mike, Julie, David, Judith, Roslyn and Lawrence. We maintained a slow pace by being busy identifying many species in the first 200 meters. All up it was 2 hours for a very short walk with plenty of bird song for the journey.

This area is regional eco-system 1288 Open Forest. The path commences under a large Foam Bark - Jagera pseudorhus. The 600 metre path leads from Hartley Road to Caryota Ct on what is described on Google Earth as Cliff Road.  It is Council managed Reserve but not a Landcare site. To the west is the Sports ground and the right is a cliff with below a single 21 hectare freehold land title and next East is an unnamed section of National Park below that freehold title.

There were calls along the way from Grey Shrike Thrush 

It was good to also see a pair of Little Shrike Thrush albeit a bit hard to keep the binoculars oin them as the chased each other through the trees and understory.


Create and maintain the environment and surrounding surviving nature will help you along the journey. It will also gradually put its own stamp on what it wants the ecology to be in this location but it will take many years for that occur. At least we know its getting going here. We also know that the work is not about control but assisting and suggesting to nature and then nature will have its say heard. That’s the way it should be. We just help keep it true to its own local ecology and is not taken over dramatically by the invaders we bring to this locality.

Why does attentiveness to nature matter? In a very fundamental sense, we are what we pay attention to. Paying heed to beauty, grace, and everyday miracles promotes a sense of possibility and coherence that runs deeper and truer than the often illusory commercial, social "realities" advanced by mainstream contemporary culture. ... Our attention is precious, and what we choose to focus it on has enormous consequences. What we choose to look at, and to listen to--these choices change the world. As Thich Nhat Hanh has pointed out, we become the bad television programs that we watch. A society that expends its energies tracking the latest doings of the celebrity couple is fundamentally distinct from one that watches for the first arriving spring migrant birds, or takes a weekend to check out insects in a mountain stream, or looks inside flowers to admire the marvelous ingenuities involved in pollination. The former tends to drag culture down to its lowest commonalities; the latter can lift us up in a sense of unity with all life.
