Fifteen Hurriers set out this morning for Button Quail Farm in the Elgin Valley. We drove through many farms before eventually reaching the Palmiet river where we parked at the accommodation site. From there we traversed south into the Kogelberg mountains, where we walked around 9 kms along a trail through partially burnt fynbos.
The weather was perfect for walking and we managed to see a fairly good cross-section of interesting flowers along the way. Once again Orchids featured highly on our wish list, but we only saw four species; Satyrium coriifolium, Satyrium bicorne, Satyrium stenopetalum and Disa bracteata.
It was our first walk in the area and we really appreciate Debby having made the effort to arrange this interesting venue.
