I've spent the day with seven other National Trust volunteers on Island Taggart, one of the largest islands on Strangford Lough, County Down.
We met in Killyleagh and took the little boat from an old quay across to Taggart.
Today we were mainly gathering gorse and brambles for burning.
We have a new trolley cart. It is black, with collapsible sides, and can carry up to about 300 kilogrammes.
This cart, which has four pneumatic tyres, proved useful for the logs and tools.
I lunched on tuna and sweetcorn sandwiches today.
