The next job was to take the bog mats on to the marsh - so that the heavy machinery do not sink in the marsh - or damage it unduly:
With a little help from the volunteering team:
Then it was back to the pole:
Now to transfer the nest from the 'mule' to the contractor's tracked vehicle:
And on to the marsh:
Then fitting the nest on to the platform:
and moved on to the place where the nest was to be erected:
How deep is this pond?
Now where are we going to put the nest? (Sorry for the camera shake - I was laughing so much!)
Oh yes -this should do it!
Moving the bog mats into position:
Now for the difficult part:
Fixed into position - backfilled and strapped to nearby willows the nest is in! This is an image of the nest from the marsh.
Now it is ready - a good home for a homeless osprey!
