Friday Jobs

Friday, July 18th 2014

Colin came in this morning to lend a hand with some of the Friday jobs, the first of which was filling the feeders and hoppers around the reserve.

With the extra weight from a few heavy showers this morning many of the branches along the net rides were hanging low and needed pruning before the 8th CES day of the season this weekend. As you can see, with the weight of new growth and rainwater rather a lot had to be pruned out to clear the rides!

Hopefully the ringers should now be able to easily get the nets up when they start at 4.15am. Thank you Colin for all your help today.
