Not the Usual Monday!

Monday, May 15th 2017

This was not the usual Monday morning, and it did not finish in the style of a Monday! The first thing to notice about the day was it was raining, in fact 7mm fell from arriving to leaving today. Stacey and Jenny were in when we arrived first thing; they were checking the small nest boxes on site and looked bedraggled and wet when they finally returned to the Field Centre mid-morn.

While they were out in the rain we were getting ready for a walk and talk with Leyburn Probus group, with the group opting for more of a talk than a walk in the rain.

Just as the presentation was completed a seed order arrived and we had to off-load the pallet of bird seed in the seed store while the Probus group were given a guided walk.

Being down by the parade square we were informed that the log delivery was arriving so we stayed in the area to meet it as it arrived and parked up.

The vehicle was far too long to wind its way down the reserve track to where we required the logs and ....

....as you can see far too large for us to man-handle into position. The vehicle was larger than most vehicles that come down our track,  one trailer load was left behind for later. We went ahead of the lorry to trim back rain laden branches to prevent unecessary damage...

....and remove anything which would prevent easy access.

 We were soon off-loading the heavy cargo.

This took a bit of time to do; each massive log had to be placed with the idea that we would not be able to tweak them later, at least not by hand!

Finally the logs were all removed to their allocated areas, and Alli made his way off the reserve with an empty load!
