Dry conditions were evident during an outing to Ravensbourne National Park.
The area is renowned for having high numbers of blood-sucking ticks that inhabit the forest. These insects burrow their heads under the skin, making removal a careful exercise. Failure to detect them and remove within 24 hours can result in debilitating illness, including tick paralysis.
Fortunately this trip was tick-free.
Poor light due to increasingly overcast conditions restricted photo opportunities.
Due to a lack or on occasions, total absence of track markers, a casual photographic stroll turned into a journey of ‘which way?’
