Description

This one is fruiting and flowering like mad. Not sure how much good it will do as a large 'wave' of sand is moving in from the northwest. What was >1ha of vegetation at the beginning of 2017 is down to less than 10% of that, and looks like it will be all buried by mid-year, if the winds continue.

Ca. 95% of the vegetation is exotic, like this one.

This fungus must be at least a bit salt tolerant. Maybe it won't regularly get inundated on top of the log, but every time there's a southwest wind and high tide, it will get wet.

I can't positively identify this wee plant as African boxthorn, but it is almost certainly a boxthorn, and I've never seen any other boxthorn variants anywhere near Manawatu estuary. Notable for the fact that it is growing in the tidal zone.
