Minnowburn Pond

Timothy Belmont crawled into his pit at 3am this morning; and I was up at eight-thirty, hungover, in order to go to Minnowburn, outside Belfast.

Today we were supplemented by Lagan Valley volunteers. We planted about three hundred trees, mostly for landscaping the new network of paths approaching the pond.

A beautiful rustic fence has been erected beside the path.

A craftsman from Portaferry was there, too, helping us to create a natural willow hide.

We had our packed lunches in the warden's office.
