October

A welcome wash-out for the scheduled October session. Nice rain. We will have a catch-up session on October 25/10 to target some seeding Broom. The very good news is that Streamwatch macroinvertebrate testing on 13/10/17 revealed lots of Mayfly nymphs and other bugs in Lawson Creek, downstream of the swamp. This nymph is very sensitive and requires very good water quality so their presence is pleasing. This is a big improvement on the last series of testing.
