dear readers,
Red Bloodwood is a prolific nectar producer and is visited by many
creatures, day and night, although the resultant honey is different to most

Swamp-Mahogany is also heavily budded on the south caost near Nowra.
Woolybutt E. longifolia is in heavy flower. Well worth an inspection

Yes, Regent honeyeaters are among the fauna that enjuy Red Bloodwood

Send this or else computer
