Mid-week site visit only; Wednesday - bright and sunny. Rain started on Thursday. Medium heavy, with odd pluses of heavy rain, but persistent all through the day, continuing into Friday - when the deluge began, and continued and continued. I would say, almost 36 hours of continuous rain.
I decided against a weekend visit. Partly due to the sodden condition of the ground (freshly bulldozed earth is lethal stuff), and partly as there did not seem to be a huge number of lorries around on Wednesday. The position of the bulldozer and where spoil was being dropped on the north shore of Cormorant lake (south), suggest that Inert are working their way southward, filling in what is left of said lake.
I'm somewhat perplexed as to why they are not doing the opposite i.e. working northward, from the south shore of Cormorant lake (south). Lorries do not have this long, semi-circular route, over the land mass to get to the north shore of the lake. They simply dump it on the south shore, needing only to cover a fraction of the distance. Very odd.
Anyway, I also decided to leave it a couple of weeks to enable Inert to make real progress, which results in more dramatic 'then-and-now' photos.
I'm bulking out the slide show with some photos of wildlife I saw on the site on Wednesday. Although the birds came reasonably close, they didn't come that close, and some heavy cropping was required to bring them to the fore.
