Basecamp Operational

With the forecast rain, I thought it would be a good idea to put up some cover. Thankfully Marcus and Aaron came along to assist.

As it happened, the monsoon held off until the afternoon! It’s always good fun to make a bit of a den though…

Absolutely loads of people walking past today, and we could see that most wanted to join in with the laughter, coffee, and cookies.

We scalloped a new clearing on the northern end of this section, leaving a little nub of scrub to separate it from the main clearing, and next week we will flip over to the other side of the path and carry it on for a few meters more.

In my excitement, I forgot to take a photo, so instead, here is a picture of some fungi that we found.

Candlesnuff, if I am not mistaken.

The bird-feeders are full, so the squirrels are probably having a feast.

As the path flora shuts down for the winter, we need to find a way to keep feeding the birds. We probably need squirrel-proof feeders – I will scrounge some from somewhere.

And lastly, looking down on our camp from the observation bench. And yes, with practice I will get the tarp fully over the picnic bench…

Next week, same area, grubbing out bramble roots, putting in Bluebell bulbs given to us by our good friend, Andrew, and maybe mow the grass if it is dry enough.
