Grafters

Thursday, February 25th 2016

Today our small technical team amongst other jobs have been building a new Mink raft, after one was deemed beyond repair. We have several mink rafts set out across the site, they house a dish filled with clay. Should any of these predators enter those waterbodies and board the raft they would leave evidence in the form of footprints. Thankfully, the only tracks that have been recorded on them have been those of our resident population of water voles and long may that continue.


Other tasks included repairing the boot cleaners, now bristling with pride outside the verandah,…… so um..... no excuses now for leaving muddy footprints in the Field Centre…..

The water levels on the wetlands are not quite right at the moment, working out how to address this is tricky, as it's a complicated system.  We checked the water levels this afternoon and a board was put in place to retain water where there was previously an outlet. We will monitor the situation closely over the next week or so in order to find a solution. 

Thank you Team Thursday for all your hard work today, it's much appreciated.
