The Invaders (Part 1)

Here's an nasty brute for you - Fringed water-lily Nymphoides peltata. It's native to the south of England but when it gets over here it turns into a nightmare. Check out these shots sent to us by John Early from NIEA. These were taken at Belfast Waterworks - if somebody suggest sticking it in your pond DON'T!!!!
