With the sun shining and YewView looking amazing, my main aim this week was to get the otter cam installed. I always like to do a morning walk around the site. Only working there once a week, on average, so much can change in a week and I like to see what’s going on. The wildflower meadow that we planted earlier in the Spring is looking amazing and was full of bees, hoverflies and other insects. We are thrilled with how quickly this has established and the impact it has had.
The site is very much planted for pollinators and looks amazing at this time of the year. Packed with all sorts of flowers, the site is literally buzzing with activity!
There is something very special about snacking straight from the tree or bush whilst working on site and I certainly won’t be short of these this Summer and Autumn.
I set to work straight away on the otter cam floating platform. Having finished the actual platform last week, I needed to install it in situ. As I want the platform to only float in emergencies (allowing us to rescue the camera) it needs to be stable for the rest of the time. I placed 4 posts in the ground so the platform could rest on top of these…
The camera was then set on top and adjusted to face the holt, as before.
