Sun Shines

Thursday, September 28th 2017

Sunshine after 15mm of rain overnight was a pleasant surprise.   Water was going over the weir at the lake in a torrent.  The lovely weather, hitting a balmy 18 degrees, enabled us to re-cement the bird feeder slabs at the lake.   We reinforced the bedding cement with old chicken wire before relaying the paving slabs.

Katrina and Christine topped up the hoppers and cleared the chaff that had built up over time.

Jackie wandered the footpaths of the reserve leaf blowing the never ending fall of leaves.  Mike, having done the various water checks, linked up with Jackie to repair some boardwalks ....

....before heading off to clear a small tree that threatened to fall onto one of the paths, probably due to the heavy rain last night.

John did a great job finishing off the pointing of the slab-based feeding station ….

….and using the surplus gravel and cement to fill a few potholes in the access road.   

Thank you, as ever, to the great team who carried out  a variety of jobs today.
