    Today I marked out another "house block" for my biodiversity surveys on creeksides in the Enoggera Catchment Brisbane. I marked out of 20m x 70 m the same as the Bromwich St site and the control block on the 'Island' in Walton Bridge Reserve. This particular transect is a 6 yr old reveg site built on the fringe of a park. There are some established locally native plant species, some left-over park exotics and some mixed amenity plantings around an open area so it very much resembles a standard house block. It may not produce my 'indicator species' of good habitat, but who knows? I sampled the edge of it today and this posting records some of the more interesting finds. Sorry I got the name wrong before.
