Author's notes

A single plant washing out of the sand cliff made by the newly opened channel (headland side) at the Wallagoot Lake mouth. Is the Coastal Weeds Project still going?

Hi Peter, I tried to confirm your sighting but the system won't let me. You'd really be better swapping over to the iNaturalist platform (see ALCW home page for instructions), as Naturemapr seems to be getting a bit buggy.
I believe the coastal weeds project is still going with Koori crews supervised by James Cook. Haven't heard anything to the contrary. They only make 3 passes a year though, so it is well worth pulling any weeds you see on the beaches rathere than assuming they will get there in time to prevent seeding. Looks like that one might have involved a fair bit of effort to get out though!

Thanks for that Jackie. I will sort out the platform issue at my end.
Nice to hear the Coastal Weeds Project is still going. I will take a tool and a larger bag next time I visit Wallagoot Beach and dig out the rest of this plant. You are right about the effort needed, I pulled out what I could but this plant was deeply embedded in the sand.

Yeah, they tend to get buried with sand drift and grow up through it. Still can't confirm this, alas.
