A Hot Day!

Thursday, May 25th 2017

With temperatures reaching 27.5 °C in the shade it was not surprising that we were sweating when standing still. The team of volunteers donned various head wear to keep the sun from baking scalps. Christine looked particularly summery as she re-vamped the various route marker posts around the reserve.

 We are gradually going around the reserve and giving a face lift to the various green, red and yellow route marker posts.

 There is a fair amount of these posts which need taking out, stained, colours touched up then put back looking fresh. This is no easy task and it all takes time.

The rest of the team strimmed and mowed the net rides ready for the bird ringing on the weekend, as well as doing the important water and dam checks that ensure that we have water in the places that need it. Andrew put out the hose for the grass in front of the Field Centre as it is looking rather thirsty at present!

In the Field Centre Ivan was putting some edging which tidy ups some areas, and the results speak for themselves.

Thank you to all that helped today.
