Ridge Workday 20th August 2005

Dare we mention the weather being good again? Maybe not. I think visitors will start to believe it's all a ruse to get people to join us (but it was really nice - honest).

Bob trying out the scythe

Yes, the picture says it all.

We're back at that pond again.

It's the 'Oak Tree Pond', our biggest on the Ridge, and we're having another session to remove the encroaching weed as well as scoop out some of the 'silt' that's been washed down by the feed to the pond.

A messy day this one as we all had to wade in. If you want to see the messy, gory details then click on the picture to the left to get the full-size version. I warn you though, the size of the file is large and may take quite a while to load if you don't have a cable connection.

Elisabeth, Maureen and Lee were on weed removal duty, whilst Mike, Peter and Bob had the task of removing the silt and mud to make a deeper area on the side of the pond where the feed entered.

All-in-all, another successful day - just hope the pond-life appreciates it.
