Frilford Heath SSSI, 30th June 2012

This was another Himalayan Balsam-bashing session at Frilford for the 10 or so volunteers who turned out for an uncharacteristically dry June day.  

While the rain held off, the conditions underfoot were still rather damp and the Balsam had grown up somwhat since our last visit.  

The battle to rid the site of this foreign invader is slowly being won, but another sesssion in a couple of weeks' time should also help greatly.  Watch this space!

Balsam, what Balsam?!
