Author's notes

WalterEgo thank you so much for reporting this Bridal creeper, which is a Weed of National Significance! I have been visiting the site yesterday and dug out an over 1 square meter mat of tubers (see the 3.rd photograph that I added). I bagged the tubers and any other material. I wonder whether it is safe to depose off in my rubbish bin or whether it needs to be burned. the site is clearly a garden waste dumping site. There are several garden dumping sites in the vicinity all around the trunks of large trees. The source is a garden just about 200m to the west at Mackenzie Street. The previous owner extended his garden into nature reserve and abused the nature reserve regularly for dumping garden waste. I reported the dumping and garden extension several times over the past years. Waltraud 20.11. 2017

i can't see the little map on the topright corner for any record; the map square is still there as well as the sign for the type of creature ie wildflower etc but no satellite or street map image.

Thanks Waltraud, we know about this issue. Something is going on with the google maps service and I'm currently investigating. As a workaround you can just double click the map and it should then load correctly. Hope to resolve shortly.. Cheers Aaron.
