paths are looking good, i go round with a par of big sissers and trim back any nettles/bramballs/other, so that people cam walk freely, allso went round all the internal paths and done them as well, they where all passible, the only thing that needs doing is the spanning river, lots of fish swimming around init, but heavily overgrown

ps

no tents or people living in middle of island

The spawning channel and other works will be in the late autumn when everything is dying back, nesting birds have flown etc. We will speak to the EA to agree what needs to be done, hope to get them done as a while back for the pics mate. Gonna keep us busy Smile

son and me went for a visit, all nice and clean, there was 6+ bags at far end of island sunday, where dog poo bin is, which was full, that had all been cleaned up, contracters, its looking good, just for reference, found an area where kingfishers make there holes, for nesting, it needs de-forristing a bit, for next year, plus signs saying no fishing, as it is in a no fishing area, but people still fish it

been down their today, no rubbish to talk about, the EA ask John the lock keeper to see about the nets, but you cannnot get to them from the shore, you need a boat, plus they had gone,

cheers Colin for the help, any time wiil do, a par of garden shears is needed at the momment, the ones you have to get on your knees to cut the grass with, to cut back stinging nettles along the paths, so just gives us a bell
