Another great find at Mt Burr Swamp!

Just before Christmas, NGT staff went for a bit of a wander around Mt Burr Swamp, to see how the site is shaping up after the wet spring.

As we know from previous blogs, we’ve already recorded important species like Growling Grass (or Southern Bell) Frogs, Dwarf Galaxias, Brolga and SE Red-tailed Black Cockatoos on site. And now we can add one more important species to the list – NGT’s very own logo – the Ancient Greenling Damselfly!

Thanks to Bryan’s sharp eye and quick reflexes on the camera, we even have the photographic evidence to share with you.

Enjoy!
