Beacon Hill

Strange outing. We went looking for a Midlands KZN target species ands found lots of them. Seen them there before n\but now there are many specimens in part of the reserve going down from the beacon. Map shows them on the ridge on the north facing gentle slope. Only seen here and not elsewhere on Beacon Hill.
