Description

Leptospermum aff. scoparium (b) (AK 247250; “coastal silver prostrate”) of de Lange et al. (2018). Specimen growing on a iron pan just above coastal cliffs. Branchlets rooting freely on contact with ground.

I have deliberately obscured this observation for now - as the site is sensitive to human traffic and vandalism.

This may not be the right forum but I do wonder about the small piece of korflute left behind after monthly deployments of Chew Track cards to monitor rats.

Do weka forage thes epieces of plastic?

(The litter would decrease if I could actually catch the rats).
