Description

I was told that a few birds had appeared on Western Spring Lake during the weekend by keen birder Chris Mules. So I went along on Monday (29 June) to see them - they were still there. Chris Mules kindly sent me this image (way better than what I got in the fading light) of two birds she had observed on 28 June 2015.

Description

Sparingly naturalised in old garden area. Plants spreading vegetatively through detachment of stems and rooted pieces via human traffic and garden maintenance. This population thrived until 2009 when the entire area was redeveloped to house a Tamarin and Marmoset exhibit. Vouchers lodged in AK and CHR.

Natal Lily Clivia miniata

Description

Locally naturalised on margin of basalt cliff face (actually the top of a road cutting into basalt lava) above State Highway One. In heavy shade with wandering Jew (Tradescantia flumenensis). First noted here by Brian Murray who told me about this site. This is the only place I have ever seen this species genuinely naturalised - presumably from birds having dispersed the seed (which in New Zealand is viable) from nearby extensive plantings. Clivia miniata is very commonly grown around Auckland, and the red fruit is frequently taken (ingested whole) by blackbirds (Turdus merula) so more naturalisations are only to be expected.

Description

Sparingly naturalised within kerbside garden (growing amongts planted Fichsia procumbens - planted Blechnum present in nearby planter boxes - discussion with landowners of the time made it quite clear the plant imaged was a 'wildling'). Plants remained in this location until 2011 when the adjacent [property was refurbished and the surrounds cleared (this also destroyed a thriving Asplenium aethiopicum population - see http://naturewatch.org.nz/observations/1701894). Herbairum material from this site lodged at AK was determined as B. punctulatum var. pucntulatum by Dr Carrick Chambers
