A fine, sunny day, and a varied working session was conducted on the east Waratah Street site #4. Bushcare Officer cut and treated with herbicide Privet, Pittosporum (as a weed; also naturally occurring in the Blue Mountains) and an unknown large ornamental on the bushland edge of unformed Waratah Street. Other members of the group tackled Privet seedlings, Turkey Rhubarb and Japanese Honeysuckle (area #4). In area #3, giant Japanese Honeysuckle was treated. Tasmannia insipida was recovered from J. Honeysuckle and Blackberry. The Rough Tree Ferns and King Fern (Todea Barbara) recovered from dense Privet infestations are responding well to sunnier conditions and adding new growth.
Streamwatch convenor reports that water quality of Lawson Creek was good. Numerous Common Eastern Froglets were present.
