A busy morning at the bushcare site! A very damp bushcare site: lots of surface iron oxide was present, and small rivulets were flowing. We worked on the western Waratah Street site. A lot of time went in to bagging up plantings and scattering a dense cover of natural debris over them, in an effort to deter the resident Wallabia bicolor from munching on the plantings. Some of the plants are doing quite well, but others have been somewhat trimmed. More check-dams were added to the swamp; aquatic fauna, in the form of crayfish, have taken up residence. Honeysuckle was treated in the privet forest. Weedy grasses along the track were managed. Assistance was lent to young BMX folk who needed some tool help with their broken down bike!
Streamwatch convenor reports that water quality was very good: oxygen levels, phosphates, chemical balance, salt levels and turbidity.
