Description:

the local road verges and nearby railway reserve have had the Fine bristled Burgrass ( https://www.ispotnature.org/node/893822 ) slowly creeping in for a couple of years and now a second obnoxious Burgrass is invading. This one appears to be more palatable and only seeds encased in relatively massive spines and the chewed remnants of a few shoots were observed. The season has been very dry resulting in restricted herbaceous growth in the general area.
