No Ciaran, there was CNG around but the 2 tussocks I dug out were definitely serrated tussock! So I have taken the liberty of deleting your confirmation. Look particularly at the second photo. ( There does seem to be a head or two of CNG at the top of the first photo.)

Can you swap the photos around? That might make it easier to see it is serrated tussock. Did you remove the Chilean needle grass as well?

Gosh, I am not super woman - there were thousands of CNG plants! I just mapped them on FieldMaps app. I tried to swap the photos but an error occurred.

I removed a few CNG the other day then realised how many there were. I have had problems editing photos recently too.

When trying to re-order the photos, do you get the message "This page isn't working" ?

I get that with all the emails on my phone when I try to ‘view this comment” or select sighting. Just now, anything comes up with ‘Record not found or has been deleted’. With photos I have been unable to rotate, or simply icon appears instead of image.

Thanks. I'll add the problem of "This page isn’t working..." to the list for Aaron to sort out when he is back into the groove again. Mike, re the phone errors, you might like to report those separately to Gaelian via the Platform Support.

I confirm Barbara's comment that there is a huge amount of Chilean Needle Grass. It is spreading in this high-traffic area (running walking bike riding kids playing dog on and off lead walking horse riding also local residents slash tracks to access an informal track which is overhung by CNG) I notified PCS for several years - it is now spreading into Friends of Mt majura improvement sites.
Contractors have been spraying between 5-10 % of the CNG in that area and PCS gave me some native grass seeds with the request to manage CNG there. I have not the capacity I have not the strength, I have not the experience.
