Project Area: G. Froggy Pond Wetland and Edging
A wet wetland full of Phragmites Australis, alien encroachment in centre of reedbed and surrounding banks, thick
pepper, bug weed, syringe etc. Dense alien infested vegetation on western terrain into Mount Moreland.
Froggy Pond is home to three Threatened frog species, the Pickergill's Reed Frog (Critically Endangered), the Natal
Leaf-Folding Frog and the Spotted Shovel-nosed Frog (both Vulnerable).
African Python of huge size seen in these parts.
Barn Swallows use as roosting ground.
Hammerkop nest, sandpaper figs with fern undergrowth.

and grasses. Special care to be taken due to sensitivity of species present.
Extremely thick vegetation on Western terrain sloping down into natural deep drainage channels, lots of round river
