Last Monday I stopped in at Dowling Forest Cemetery on the Sunraysia Highway near Miners Rest, to check out what was happening since the ecological burn a few months ago. There was a willie wagtail (Rhipidura leucophrys) hunting for insects around the headstones. In the background is a patch of kangaroo grass that wasn’t burnt. This cemetery is a great example of somewhere close to Ballarat to see a native grassland providing habitat for native fauna. In the spring there will be a lot of wildflowers as it is a few years since the area has been burnt.
