1 week to booster jab!
Yes, the boys have done it again. Last week I predicted that based on their accelerated rate of in/up fill, Inert et al would complete their work on Cormorant lake (north) by this week. This was not to be.
Progress had slowed considerably. There could be many reasons for this. Lack of lorries available for hire. Work needing to be completed elsewhere on the restoration. Possibly lorries back to queuing again. Who knows.
What little remains of Cormorant lake (north) could be filled in next week, given a little effort and availability of sufficient plant. However, I have seen this scenario many times over the years, as Inert flit about the site.
I think this was the first week for many, many months where we did not get any rainfall. The odd, tiny bit of drizzle, but no rain. Large parts of what was Finch pond are now very firm. A few soft bits remain. Therefore, I was rather surprised as to how torn up the ground was around the in/up fill activity.
After an astonishingly mild autumn, a cold front moved in last night. On the one hand this will mean wrapping up really well. On the other hand, it might brighten up the mornings. Yesterday was extraordinarily gloomy, with low, thick dark grey clouds. Photography was a challenge, early in the morning.
