Back to Riverdale Farm

This week, we went back to Riverdale Farm to take care of some more invasives. Stinging nettle is pretty much one of the worst at this site. We also worked on Japanese Knotweed and Burdock. 

As usual at this time of the year, the sanctuary pond is pretty murky and full of duckweed.

Some of the other ponds are still quite clear.

The slopes are covered with English Ivy.


Lots of ducks in the ponds.
 
Black-crowned night heron.


Stone wall that leads to the Monkey House.  I'm just back from a trip to England and this wall reminds me of the stone walls and fences of the English countryside.
