Biderap Dry Season

January - February

Hot, dry weather.
High temperatures and low rainfall.
Female Common Brown butterflies are flying.
Bowat (tussock-grass) is long and dry.
The Southern Cross is high in the south at sunrise.

"I don't know why, we used to play around the tussock grass. Playing hidey. So they must have been big enough to hide around. And it was nothing to see a snake curled up inside the tussock grass."
Dot Peters, 1999.
