The students Bryce and Ben have been helping us out at to spruce up Moor Green Lakes. Together we cleared and repaired the fencing round the hibernaculum, a buried house for hibernating reptiles. Steven unearthed all 10 of the entrance pipes as some had become covered with soil, and banged in marker posts. After some artistic repainting of burnt sections, the restored map board is now in place on the river path in it’s new spangly metal frame.
Bryce helped us tow the pontoon back to Long Island, in preparation for using it as a floating bridge on the next task on Tuesday 3rd December. Steven & I then took great delight in testing the new boat perfecting our rowing technique, as we’ve decided that next time we tow the pontoon we’ll ditch the mighty 4-horse outboard, and rely on muscle power alone….. Finally a home time shot of dusk at Moor Green, after a great couple of days.
