Thus, I started creating this blog on the 10th September, as Hurricane Irma trundled into Florida after laying bare much of the Caribbean. It took a bit of time to back fill the posts.
There was no walking around the proposed new reserve this Sunday (10th Sept) as we were clearing Willow, Birch and Oak from the Moor Green Lakes part of the reserve. We had a good turn out, and a mighty amount of shore line was cleared. My daughter, pyrotechnic that she is, spent a happy couple or three hours helping with the bonfire, first by getting it started and then by feeding it. She must have shifted about a ton of branches and dumped them on the fire.
Highlights for this week.
Manor Farm: The pump keeps pumping.
This Saturday morning there was a bulldozer leveling off the piles of soil from the conveyor foundation removal.
Fleet Hill Farm: Further bushes and trees removed from behind where stone crusher once stood.
Evidence of much movement of machinery along the shores of stone crusher lake.
New bridle path nearing completion.
Hills of ballast reduced to complete various paths.
