The Shawfields Small Lake has acquired a colour make-over!
An otherwise completely harmless Blue Dye has been added to suppress the growth of rampant so-called Canadian Pond Weed.
Technically it can be classed as an invasive species although in the context of crayfish and cormorants is that a bad thing? Debate continues as to whether this type of weed which grows from lake bed to water surface is good, bad or a bit of both- opinions differ. Personally I like it but then I own a weed rake!
