Himalayan Balsam being removed from the section of the riverside between the sewage and A96 bridges. River CC have funding to revitalise the ecology of this area: Himalayan Balsam, Japanese Knotweed and Giant Hogweed will be either removed from this area or sprayed as part of an ongoing project and there will be some work on the trees too.
What a shame funding is only available for this stretch of the town centre river walks. The invasive species have had a good year again and they need to be dealt with so the complex ecological relationship between the flora and fauna of the river bank and the river can once again thrive. The authorities are well aware of the dangers presented by the "foreign plants" on the Nairn - here's Fergus Ewing and others at the Howford earlier this year.
Well done Tommy and River CC for getting this project underway!
