Yesterday we were working on Cowpen Marsh. As grazing is needed to keep the vegetation in perfect condition for breeding waders we need to allow the graziers access to all parts of the marsh to look after their cattle. This means bridging the Fleet at several points to let them cross.
Ed took this photo of us putting the final touches to one of the bridges we had just built, with me on the left, Ayleen, Josh, Bethany, Matthew and Molly. Just before the photo was taken the Great White Egret ( or Great Egret) flew over and settled on Greatham Creek giving us all lovely views. It may be in the area for some time.
As readers will have seen from the previous blog Josh is now starting university. Also Matthew, who has been with us for the summer, has returned to his university, so seeing the Egret was a bonus. We wish them both well. Of course we all spent a little time after work with a little food and drink.
