TREAT News | Cool Season April - June 2020

Field Days

Field days are usually held between the planting season and the end of the year workshops. However, because of the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, these are currently not being held. When restrictions ease, it is hoped to have a field day at Hoare's, as this was required as part of the grant funding arrangements. Keep informed via TREAT's website or Facebook page.

Nursery News

Peter Snodgrass

Hopefully you are all safe and well and taking care to stay that way in this current climate. Covid-19 has pressured the global population to extreme and made it extremely difficult for most of us to function in a manner that resembles anything we would consider normal. We have endured some very rapid stages of restriction throughout the community in order to contain the spread of the virus. Here, the Display Centre closed to the public and nursery working bees reduced in numbers; the call being sanitisation and physical distancing at the first stage, then the TREAT assembly reduced to a total of 10 including QPWS staff, and finally zero volunteers able to be present at the nursery. TREAT volunteer hours average over 6,000 hours a year, which is equivalent to 3 full time staff, so the impact on production and maintenance became noticeable very quickly and we have had to schedule things very differently.

Congratulations however on another successful planting season. It was a photo finish with social restrictions increasing towards the end, but successful nevertheless, thanks to the commitment of volunteers throughout the very busy schedule.

It has been a very busy time at the nursery, with bids going in to construct a new shed on the site behind our old brown shed. Hopefully works will be completed before the end of the financial year to provide us with a larger and more ergonomic storage shed.

We have continued to harvest fruit, and volunteers who are able to, have been processing the seed at home for propagation at the nursery. Gordon Lyle came up with a great idea where he has a raised pallet set up in his driveway for pick up and delivery, making it much easier to physically distance ourselves from each other.

We also have a few volunteers in the same fashion taking delivery of potting mix and seedlings for potting up, and we have made Mondays and Fridays the set days for these transactions to take place. Hopefully with QPWS staff also potting, weeding and sizing, we can produce enough stock to at least cater for project commitments, and providing it is safe to do so, then everything can go ahead as per normal for the next planting season. At this stage however, I am unable to guarantee the production and provision of the extra 10,000 trees that we normally grow for TREAT members and their individual projects, but we will endeavour to, at minimum, provide the trees entitled to members for their membership and volunteering. The only certain promise I can give is that we will do our best to do our best.

Thank you so much for all the support and the continued work going on behind the scenes, as without those efforts things would look very bleak. With Nick Stevens taking extended leave from the end of January until the end of April at this stage, I have been acting in his position in his absence so I am very grateful that I have had Stuart Russell and Simon Brown here to bolster the team and keep the wheels turning.

In the midst of such uncertain times, the symbiotic relationship between TREAT and QPWS is a great example of how by working together in the face of adversity, we can still achieve great things.

On that note, take care, stay safe and we look forward to when we can all get back together and continue as normally as possible.

2020 Planting Season

Barb Lanskey

The expected 20,000 plus trees to be planted this wet season have nearly all been planted, despite the Covid-19 pandemic causing some problems for the later plantings. There were 70-90 volunteers at the first four plantings, numbers being swelled by the SFS (School for Field Studies) students. Volunteer numbers have been getting higher in recent years, indicating local enthusiasm for planting trees to improve our environment.

After the 6th planting, restrictions were put on travel, and social distancing became the norm. The SFS and SIT (School for International Training) students returned to the United States and Barron Catchment Care cancelled their Wongabel planting.

Clarkson's - February 1 - 2000 trees

This was the first of the season's plantings and there was a really large turnout of 92 volunteers. The planting day was fine but there'd been rain the previous days, so Marion was kept busy directing the car parking to ensure a downhill start for the return journeys. I was unable to come and help that day, but at this Topaz site the holes are typically dug and the trees placed for planting, with no fertiliser or crystals added. John has found that his bandicoots tend to dig up the young trees to get at the fertiliser, and Topaz is known for being wet. The barbecue is held at John and Marion's house, where everyone loiters in the lovely surroundings.

McLean Ridge (TREAT) - February 8, 2750 trees - February 22, 2500 trees

The weather was hot and humid for the first of these two plantings and many sweaty volunteers appeared at the barbecue afterwards. Volunteers were also wet at the second planting, but that was due to some unexpected showers. SFS came to both plantings and the students were very helpful in watering the trees at the first planting, then at the second planting, convincing Mark that there had been enough rain in the showers to water the trees. Mark had done all the site preparation and was mindful that the trees which did best in last year's plantings were those that had been immediately hand-watered after planting. There was a lot of dead grass on site as mulch for this year's trees. However, some of the trees to be planted were infills for where trees had been lost last year, and there the ground was mostly bare, so many volunteers got muddy as well as wet.

Trees are put out on the Friday afternoon before a planting, mostly with fertiliser and crystals added. Only a few volunteers helped on the first Friday and it was a very late finish, so a call for extra help was made for the second Friday; the response was so great that when some turned up a bit late they found the job had been done.

Both plantings were completed in under 2 hours and the barbecue trailer then packed up and everyone departing in the next hour. After the second barbecue though, drying out the gazebo covers was an extra job for Elizabeth at home.

Emms' - February 29 - 1700 trees

This year there was only one planting at Cedarvale (we've been doing two for the last few years) to help with infilling the large 2015 strip planting, an area within the Tablelands Cassowary Rehabilitation Centre. Some of the planting this time was on flatter ground as well as the steep eastward facing slope. Site preparation was done by NQ Land Management Services (NQLMS) and Geoff was there on the day. Again the tree spacing was quite close to allow for losses. The soil was moist after recent rain and a fertiliser tablet and water crystals were used; but it was a hot morning and unfortunately the usual afternoon storm showers didn't arrive, so Phil had to water the trees after a few days.

With only 1700 trees to be planted and a large number of volunteers, the job was finished in a very short time so it was a leisurely stroll back to the cars and then on to Carolyn and Phil's house at Barrine Park for the barbecue. SFS brought their own plates and cups to help with our recycling. Geoff spoke to the assembled group about the corridor along Toohey Creek, informing us that the controversial fence across the creek to help with keeping the cassowaries safe had been taken away, as required.

Massey Creek (QPWS) - March 7 - 700 trees

This was a lovely site to plant and the weather was great for planting, both cloudy and sunny. There were only 32 of us, but we had only 700 trees to plant. Most of the planting was across a small creek (straddled by planks used in years past along Peterson Creek) and there we planted among Lomatia fraxinifolia trees which had recruited on the site through the long grass and other weeds. Site preparation was done by QPWS and they were busy on the day hand-watering all the trees after planting. The soil was easy for planting and there was dead grass and leaves for mulching, sometimes thin on the ground, but we gathered what we could from nearby. The barbecue was a very relaxed affair with lots of food. I took the opportunity again to return home via the very scenic Old Palmerston Highway.

Bonadio's (BCC) - March 14 - 1800 trees

The trees TREAT had helped plant on a site above a detention pond years ago, had not performed well. It was a difficult site for trees to establish, on a hillside facing the western sun, and maintenance had been an issue. This planting was to add trees to infill the site and to extend it somewhat, and there was an agreement to pay for professional maintenance. Site preparation was done by the landowners and NQLMS, but unfortunately, a small fire that the landowners lit to deal with some dead weeds in a drain, got away and ended up consuming the dead grass left on site as mulch and also scorched some of the remaining bigger trees. Hoses were set up to water the trees after planting (the detention pond had worked well and was currently full of water), but with no mulch around the trees, the ground was slippery and even more so when wet. We were glad of the presence of young students to help with the watering and planting on the steep site.

There were two lots of students that morning as the SIT students came along as well as the SFS students. The SIT students were not expected that day, so we had more volunteers than anticipated and Geoff said he would have organised more trees to be planted if he'd known the volunteer numbers were going to be so high, over eighty. Luckily, the team at the Bonadio's tourist facility Top Camp where the barbecue was held, had enough food to cater for all. It was a fine day and everyone enjoyed themselves.

Misty Mountain (SET) - March 21, 2700 trees - Apr 4, 2000 trees

South Endeavour Trust (SET) are widening the corridor at the East Evelyn Gap and this year funded another two plantings at their Misty Mountain Nature Refuge property on the western side of the gap. Mark McCaffrey has been doing their site preparation and this year prepared another area on former grazing land. By the time these plantings were to take place, social distancing was in practice and the SFS students had gone home. For the first planting there were 33 volunteers and we held a barbecue - social distancing being practised throughout.

For the second planting we had to arrange for 10 people only to come and go at their preferred times, there was no barbecue and the number of trees was reduced to 2000. I'd arranged to help in the afternoon but received a call before lunch to say it wasn't necessary as the trees were nearly all planted. It was a fine day and the planters were all experienced. The other trees for the second planting were put in by Mark and Angela plus friends over Easter, and the last 200 of a total of 6000 trees, were planted on 14th April. With some good rain at the site before and after the plantings, the trees are apparently doing very well.

Wongabel (BCC) - 2000 trees

NQ Land Management Services (NQLMS) are completing this Barron Catchment Care (BCC) planting in stages.

Jenkins' - 1200 trees

This planting at Millaa Millaa was postponed (before restrictions) till later in the year, due to the landowner having an accident on his property and being unable to prepare the site.

We haven't had a lot of rain this wet season, but hopefully enough to get the trees away to a good start. We are looking forward to doing more plantings next year if the current restrictions on gatherings can be eased.


Wildlife of the Peterson Creek Corridor

Simon Burchill

In Nigel Tucker's article 'A Brief History of the Peterson Creek Corridor' (TREAT NEWS July-Sept 2018) he mentioned that the Burchill's have just kept on planting trees, and yes we have; generally to widen the area of existing trees along the creek and improve the quality of habitat. The sites that we have been planting are often on a heavy clay subsoil which can make the tree planting and maintenance a challenge. However, that is not all that I have been doing..

Wildlife sightings

With more access to trail cameras, I have been able to get a better idea of what wildlife is using the available habitat. This is of general interest to TREAT members. Of most interest to me though is the sighting on a trail camera of a Striped Possum. I had noticed signs of feeding activity on some of the many trees dead from various cyclones, but this was the first actual sighting of one.

Green Ringtail possums are for me a reasonably common species to see. They seem to be somewhat common in habitat where they are found, but not so common in general.

The Lumholtz Tree-kangaroos have continued to be my most regularly sighted species. Some individuals appear to have moved on but I continue to see adult females with joeys on a regular basis.

Green Ringtail Possum Lumholtz Tree-kangaroo

There has been a range of incidental bird sightings, but these are often difficult to photograph well. I do have photos of female (or young male) Victoria's Riflebirds, Azure Kingfisher along the creek, its preferred habitat, and other species regarded as common to most people, such as Brush Turkeys, particularly males building their mounds, and Orange-footed Scrubfowl which are often quite shy. Some of the other birds are species commonly found in rainforest and have included White-headed Pigeons, Wompoo Fruit-Dove and Eastern Whipbirds.

On the negative side, I have also seen feral pigs (mostly on trail cameras) and have been trying to trap some of them, with success on Xmas Eve 2019. However, before I was successful in trapping this pig, it did helpfully dig over our 2020 planting site removing in particular, the wheel ruts from the tractor driving over the site.

Platypus are not common and it's difficult to take good photos of them, but I see them on an irregular basis.

A Leaf-tailed Gecko was seen at the house for about two weeks, possibly feeding on the hairy caterpillars that feed on Acacias and White Cedars.

The Echidna is still one of the rarest species for me to see. I have some sightings but more often see the evidence of their feeding activity.

Developing habitat with help from wildlife

Brush Turkeys are my friends who help me improve the soil; from their point of view raise some chicks. Some people think I have tamed my brush turkeys but it is more accurate to say I understand how to work with and around them. I don't try to stop them from doing what they do best, and I am happy to supply them with more material if needed. I find their mounds to be some of the best compost heaps, and in recent years one Brush Turkey has used some of my compost heaps as the starting point for his mounds. When the Brush Turkey has finished with his mound I do some direct seeding into the mound to try and increase the number of trees in the area.

I have also seen a Carpet Python which had used one of the Brush Turkey mounds for laying its eggs, a possible further sign of developing habitat.

My efforts with direct seeding are aimed at increasing the number of trees for controlling weeds in some areas, but also to improve the soil as the more organic matter I can get into the soil the more likely it is that other seeds will germinate. I have had some success with a range of species, in particular Black Bean, Flame Tree and Atherton Oak.

I am also trying to mulch on a large scale using as wide a diversity of materials as possible, and as large a volume as possible, including the pruned material from the nursery, flesh from cleaning fruit at the nursery, and composted pine bark from our dead trees.

Conclusion

Dr Siggy Heise-Pavlov from the School for Field Studies has used our revegetation areas for students to conduct directed research over a number of years, and from this research I have always learnt something about the way the habitat is developing. In one case the directed research looked at insect populations including species such as dung beetles. It found the dung beetle populations to be lower than might be expected, but this is most likely due to the impact of the heavy clay soil on the soil biota. In contrast, the incidental sightings of a reasonably wide range of species would seem to indicate that the habitat is developing towards rainforest at its own pace.


Butterfly Workshop

Dinah Hansman

One of the great things about going along to TREAT on Fridays is getting to hear about interesting things that are happening on the Tablelands. One such event was a butterfly workshop run by Chris Sanderson, who is the driving force behind a new citizen science project 'Butterflies Australia'. This project is mediated through a free phone app that helps you identify and record butterflies that you see, whether conducting a systematic survey or out for a stroll in the garden.

Chris explained how our sightings can be validated through photos taken with your phone or camera, and how validated records extend what is known about butterfly distribution, migration, life histories, seasonal activity and host plants. There is a paucity of data for invertebrates (compared with birds and mammals) and this means that conservation management decisions are being made without considering invertebrates such as butterflies.

Citizen scientists - anybody with an interest who finds joy in observing butterflies - can make a contribution. For example, observations by amateurs have already extended the known range of butterfly species by 300 - 400 km. Even data on common species such as the Cabbage White and Monarch can provide useful data on the effects of climate change for example. In addition, less is known about the other stages of the butterfly life cycle - egg, larva (caterpillar) and pupa (chrysalis).

Chris and his co-presenter, Suzie Bond, explained the differences between butterflies and moths, which at times can be quite subtle! In fact, it is better to think of butterflies as a class of day-flying ditrysian moths.

What is the difference between a butterfly and a moth?

Butterfly Moth
Brightly coloured Mostly dull: callidulids, castinids and zygaenids moths an exception
Diurnal flight 
Antennae clubbed  
Frenular wing coupling absent (but not in the Regent Skipper Euschemon rafflesia) Frenular wing coupling
Humeral lobe on hindwing No humeral lobe
Wings closed above body (but in cold weather will bask in sun with wings horizontal) Rests with wings open

IDENTIFYING BUTTERFIES

The field guide in the app can help you identify butterflies and has information about their distribution, habitat and season. Butterflies are placed in 6 families:

Swallowtails: Papilionidae

Includes Cairns Birdwing and Ulysses. Large, tropical, showy colours contrasting with black. Males establish and aggressively defend territories on hilltops.

Skippers: Hesperiidae

Small butterflies, usually drab brown and orange, fly close to the ground.

Whites and yellows: Pieridae

Includes Lemon Migrant and Large Grass-yellow

Medium-sized butterflies, predominantly white and yellow. Seasonal variation in markings. Highly mobile and migratory.

Nymphs: Nymphalidae

Includes Lurcher, Bordered Rustic, Varied Eggfly, Scarlet Jezebel and Orange Bush-brown.

Medium to large butterflies, commonly brown. Forest and woodland habitat.

Metalmarks: Riodinidae

One species in Australia, the Harlequin Metalmark (Praetaxila segacia).

Blues: Lycaenidae

Includes Common Grass Blue. Beautiful upper surface, brilliant in sunlight. Have a symbiotic relationship with ants.

WHERE TO FIND BUTTERFLIES

Edges of forest.

Hilltops and ridges:

In many species the males move to a high point to display and these display territories are defended. Females will travel to mate with males with the best real estate.

In habitat:

For example, skippers are commonly found close to or on the ground.

On host plants:

Look for Orchard Swallowtails near citrus and Ulysses near Melicope.

WHEN TO LOOK FOR BUTTERFLIES

Butterfly observation is a very civilized activity which can be conducted from nine to five and when the weather is just right (not too hot, not too cold and not too windy)!

COMMON BUTTERFLIES IN THE WET TROPICS

(Modified from a list prepared for Cairns)

  1. Lurcher (Yoma sabina): A large black and orange butterfly with scalloped wing edges. Has erratic (lurching) flight. Larval food Dipteracanthus bracteatus and Ruellia species. Is larger than Bordered Rustic and the wing edge has scalloped projections.
  2. Lemon Migrant (Catopsilia pomona): A large yellow butterfly common in gardens. Rapid flight. Larvae feed on Cassia and Senna. Large numbers migrate at end of wet.
  3. Bordered Rustic (Cupha prosope): Gliding circular flight, commonly settle on foliage close to the ground.
  4. Blue Triangle (Graphium choredon): Bright turquoise blue band. Males patrol hilltop territories. Green caterpillars, feed on Lauraceae.
  5. Ulysses Swallowtail (Papilio ulysses): Upper side brilliant iridescent blue, visible as a series of flashes as it flies. Melicope species and other Rutaceae (citrus family) are host plants.
  6. Large Grass-yellow (Eurema hecabe): Large number of species - hard to differentiate, shape of black fringing is diagnostic - can see this through the closed wings. Larvae feed on species in Caesalpinaceae, Mimosaceae and Phyllanthaceae.
  7. Scarlet Jezebel (Delias argenthona): Colonial larvae feed on mistletoes.
  8. Varied Eggfly (Hypolimnas bolina): Males are highly territorial and will swoop to drive off larger butterflies (and even birds). Females have large variation in pattern from black to yellow and white. Host plants include Pseuderanthemum variabile.
  9. Common Crow (Euploea corinna): Pattern of spots is diagnostic. Form large over-wintering aggregations. Larval food plants in Apocynaceae and Moraceae.
  10. Evening Brown (Melanitis leda) and Orange Bush-brown (Mycalesis terminus): Highly variable brown markings with eye spots. Wet and dry season forms. Feed on ripe and rotten fruit. Larval food grasses.
  11. Common Grass-blue (Zizina otis): Cosmopolitan. Larvae feed on leguminous weeds as well as native legume shrubs.

Less common

  1. Tailed Emperor (Charaxes sempronius): Very big horned caterpillar. Find butterflies on hill tops, tree canopies, ridge tops and lookouts. Attracted to rotting fruit, fungi and dung.
  2. Orchard Swallowtail (Papilio aegeus): Caterpillars feed on Rutaceae. Distinctive patterning.
  3. Cairns Birdwing (Ornithoptera euphorion): Very large butterfly. Larval food plants Aristolochia and Pararistolochia.
  4. Ambrax Swallowtail (Papilio ambrax): Smaller than the Orchard Swallowtail, and male butterfly very black. Caterpillar has strong banding. Feeds on Rutaceae.
  5. Green-spotted Triangle (Graphium agamemnon): Is constantly on the move. Found along rainforest edges and on host plants in the family Annonaceae.

HOW TO DO A SURVEY

With the app 'Butterflies Australia' you can upload information about the butterflies you see in your area. This could be whenever you see something interesting that you want to photograph and share (an incidental sighting) - or you may want to make a more structured survey a part of your regular routine. This could be, for example:

Here consistency is the key - using the same place each time. Standardised surveys look at changes over time - with changes in season or changes in climate over a longer period - so you will need to do it at least three times a season. You can also keep a record of relative abundance (one, few, many, lots). Best practice guidelines for doing butterfly surveys can be found at: https://www.geobon.org/downloads/biodiversity-monitoring/technical-reports/GEOBON/2015/Global-Butterfly-Monitoring-Print.pdf.
