Raft update

This is Andy - just finishing bolting the perspex sides on to the raft; these sides do a few things - they stop the Tern chicks falling off the platform and perishing, they allow observers to see what's happening on the raft from the shore line, they stop predation - mainly from Mink, and also stop ducks getting onto the raft, as they would  tread over eggs and small Tern chicks
So this is the completed raft, apart from the 50mm of gravel that goes on when we float the raft out,which will be in the few weeks. I will keep you posted on how they are doing.
As always thanks for stopping by
