A cold start turned into a pleasant sunny morning, although it was still best to keep working to remain warm. The planned water-based activities were completed (removing overhanging branches, and repairing the mooring of the raft) along with removal of moss from the concrete block which forms the ‘basking’ area.
The remaining task, to do some more raking, was dropped in favour of studying mosses and lichens, which is rapidly becoming the favoured recording theme for 2016.
Two members participated in this month’s work party, and apologies were received from two others suffering from injury/illness/early kick-off.
