There are lots

of Specials at Gouritz. Maybe we should all go there next week. Some can do site sheets, others a seed collection and Rusell can collect specimens with Prix. We can discuss on Friday. Sally, the album is up for the ant pics and Prix, it would be good to have some of the Erica as well.
