Pirr -pirri  bur bash - 8th July

Over the last week or so we have been targeting the burs of pirri-pirri, concentrating on the network of desire lines through the dunes.  Pirri-pirri bur tends to grow on the yellow dunes (marram grass dunes) and the desire lines which have formed within the dune system.

Over the coming weeks we will continue to remove the burs from the main access points and desire lines to reduce the risk of visitors coming in to contact with the sticky heads of the burs and transferring them to other sites.

Please keep to the existing paths and desire lines and keep dogs on a short lead or at heel whilst on the Reserve.
