Many of the trees still have green leaves and there was a common darter dragonfly still on the wing. Thrushes have been singing for the last two weeks as though it was spring, yet on this day last year, the lakes were frozen and snow was beginning to fall.

Matt Hall is digging the soak-away,

Meanwhile, up at our yard by the river, the two Matts have been hard at work putting in our new composting toilet. The tank and all the fittings arrived from Wales by lorry and all we have to do is put it all together. We are building the wooden shed over the top ourselves. It will be a real "convenience" for staff and volunteers when it is finished and may cut down the number of rapid trips back to base!
