Grass fire season

The fire-scarred lower slopes of Castle Hill with,  in the distance, a patchwork of fire scars on the Town Common and near the airport

I have mentioned in earlier posts that our dry season is marked – marred, in fact – by a series of grass fires and the panoramic shot, above, taken on a recent visit to Castle Hill shows just how prevalent they are. The burning on the hill itself is obvious and I have circled fire traces on the outskirts of the city in blue – click on the photo to see them better.

The small black rectangles mark the locations of my bird photography on the Common last week, with the Pandanus viewing area on the left and the bird hide on the right.
