Gibb's Island, near Killyleagh, County Down, was the venue today for the National Trust's Strangford Lough task force.
There were ten of us today. We undertook a number of jobs, including barrier fencing, a little stone-walling and path maintenance.
This little island - practically a peninsula - is picturesque and a haven for wild flora and fauna.
Quoile yacht club is located adjacent to Gibb's.
There are still quite a few yachts on their moorings, including a handsome vessel called Glance which, I am told, was built in the 1920s.
