Safer access to the bird hides

Thanks to a great team effort over a few days we have put weld mesh on the boardwalks to the two hides at Standlake and also at Rushy Common. Colin's magic shed supplied us with a pump and with much scrubbing most of the moss, accumulated over several years, was cleared off. The swans, as usual, were not at all worried by all the comings and goings

 Not quite sure how we would have managed without Nigel's expert supervison -"Left a bit Jim, now mind your thumb".

Once fully trained Chris was able to tackle the Rushy Common bird hide all on his own (well almost, there was a field crew and back up team behind the camera of course).
