Meet the vegetation sampling Team
The Vegetation Team gets to visit all the sites and we have seen lots of different vegetation. We found a rice field that hadn't been harvested yet and some just planted Lupins. Here are pictures of what we do every day. Last Friday, we made a friend in YF who was hopping along the road next to us.
