User's notes

Many plants coming up along the fence between Mt Painter reserve (foreground in image 2) and Cook Horse Paddocks (background). Many plants that look like these also seen further back in the horse paddock. Many weed seeds were washed into the reserve, along with manure, by heavy runoff during the hailstorm on 20 January.
