Heather Harbord – “Willingdon Beach Trail”
by Heather Harbord, 7 Jul 2020.
In my anti-Covid battle, I try to boost my immune system by tramping along either the Sea Walk or the Willingdon Beach Trail twice a week.
Here are some of the plants I identified recently along the Willingdon Trail. Towards the far end of the trail, where there are less people, there are lots of bird songs. Swainson’s Thrushes are much in evidence. There must be lots of nests in the undergrowth probably well hidden from the trail. Occasionally there’s the loud hollow rat-tat-tat of a Pileated Woodpecker.
