I spied two, blue diggers at work in the middle of the western extension of the new long Manor lake. What they were up to was a bit of a mystery.
One, more southern, was perched on a soil heap. It appeared to be scrapping soil from its south and heaping up around itself. I couldn't work out if it was feeding this soil to the northern placed digger.
The other more northern digger, also perched on its own spoil heap, appeared to be pushing soil northward into what remains of Cormorant lake (south). Again, I couldn't determine if it was digging soil out south of where it was placed (hence making a deep Manor lake) or if it was being fed soil by the southern digger.
Honestly, I reckon a bulldozer would have been more suitable for this task. However, the bulldozer was busy on Chandlers farm. An awful lot of stuff is still being shipped into Chandlers farm. This is in addition to the numerous, huge piles of soil dotted about the site.
In all honesty, I couldn't really make out much of what the diggers were up to, plus there didn't seem to be much progress since my visit last week. We'll have to see if Inert continue digging out Manor lake or if this piece of work is one of their usual, random tasks, which sees them leave the site for another week or two.
Oh, our old faithful pump was back on again, nosily chugging away. Seems daft, Inert keep turning the thing on, burning large quantities of diesel to empty a lake, only for them not to do anything, except turn the pump off; which then causes lake levels to rise again!
