I knew that feathertop had been treated here in 2017 and I went to see if there was any left, to familiarise myself with the leaves and rhizomes. When I opened Field Maps to add the sighting later I saw the area was recently searched and treated. Some has been missed or regrown and there a a couple of plants outside the treated area - near the boom gate and neat the jetty.
