In front of the Lake Hide

Thursday, August 3rd 2017

The first job of the day was to have another attempt at moving the cows. It seems that today they were feeling more cooperative and after only a couple of attempts, we managed to get them to where we wanted them in the Wetland. The vegetation there is so long that I think it might be a few weeks before we see them again!

By this point the rain had stopped and it was actually quite a nice day. We all headed down to the lake to clear vegetation that was obstructing the view from the lake hide and hanging down getting in the way of the net rides.

Peter set to work with the hedge trimmer to give the Phragmites reeds in the lake itself a bit of a haircut, while a dead tree trunk behind was removed.

The rest of us cut down the ever growing stems of sycamore and ash that constantly grow from the stumps in front of the hide and obscure the view.

It was then carted away to the Bullet Catcher ready for burning later on in the season.

Everything looked much tidier by the end of the day, although we forgot to take a final photograph once we have removed all the equipment so you will have to imagine this yourselves. 

Thanks to the volunteers for their hard work today.
