The launch of HMS Colin

Friday, June 29th 2018

The first of our new mink rafts was completed this morning by Colin and Steve in the baking hot sun.

After barrowing it down to the Scrapes it was the moment of truth, and of course our newest contraption floated perfectly!

Meanwhile I was joined on the net rides by Louis and Vienna, here on work experience, where we continued to manage vegetation that was beginning to encroach on the rides, and was therefore at risk of affecting bird ringing operations this Sunday.

On the lake we now have a second family of Tufted Ducks bringing the total of chicks up to 12 thus far, we still have two families of Mallard on the lake also, with 9 chicks between them. The family of four Little Grebe are also doing fine.
