Wed 27th June 2018 - Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary, Wroxall. GG # 741.

This week Team GG were back to the Pesky Plant Pulling - out at the stream running adjacent to the Donkey Sanctuary at Wroxall. With a clear blue sky and temperatures in the high 20's it was perfect weather for continuing the ongoing battle with Himalayan Balsam. Definitely a day for sun hats, sun screen and plenty of water to drink!

A note from Mark.

We set about pulling the pesky Himalayan Balsam down-stream from The Donkey Sanctuary today, heading towards Sandford. We pulled hundreds of plants but were very pleased that in many previously dominated areas the plant was found to be absent. This is really good news and drives us on to the goal of eradicating the plant from this beautiful river valley.

Many thanks to Tony and Mark for taking the photographs this week.
