The Hamilton pollen counting team
Speaking of bakeries, we went through Beaufort on our way to Hamilton where we had some excellent fare and soon arrived at Hamilton hospital raring to go.
Hamilton is the only one of our sites not located on a university campus.
Here we met our fantastic team, Robbie, Leigh, Craig, Jordan and Julian (today’s photo), who are doing a brilliant job valiantly counting the hundreds of Cupressaceae pollen grains that get caught in the trap each day. We also spotted some oak, birch and plane tree pollen, coming no doubt from the many fine, mature trees found in and around Hamilton.
After a hard week of pollen and bakery action we took a well-earned Grampians break on our way home. Beautiful country.
All round it has been a great trip and thank you to all our pollen counters around Victoria for their help, enthusiasm and commitment to this important project.
