peninsula Villarsia reclassified

V. capensis is not found on the Peninsula. V. goldblattiana occurs in the south (Silvermine) and V. manningiana on Table Mountain

Thanks Corinne

I'm still working from MMK - old style.
So where do we see V capensis now?

Is YOU = ME

"how many did YOU see and what are the threats"
Needs clarification, please.
Meanwhile, we saw some Martins with a nest here (just of Narrow Street) on the edge of the Thames today. Must take a camera - there were two nests - never noticed them before.

OK tagged

But do you see the date? At the best of times I'm not good with counting, and this was 15 years ago - yes? How many plants (never mind the Lichens ) do you think I've photographed in that time?
Thinking - they were post-fire and near the dam - not many.
Threats - surely safe from developers in the Reserve - and obviously came into their own after the fire.
Invasives?? I leave that to Parks Board to comment.

Meanwhile today I found about seven Housemartin nests (amber status) newly arrived from Africa. My friend in North Yorkshire says their Swallows are back - nesting in the barn and there is at least one Cuckoo in the woods.
However the Terns have not yet returned to East India Dock, where I've seen Egyptian Geese.
