I've been taking advantage of the lovely weather and been out and about round by the Lake this morning checking on the progress of our Gabion Baskets and Floating Eco-systems.
I've attached a few pictures. As you can see, the gabion baskets in the smaller lake to the East of Southgate are flourishing - even the nesting coot beside them approves! The floating eco-systems are a bit more difficult to check on progress (as they are in the middle of the lake!), but you can just about see in my pictures that there are green shoots clearly showing - no doubt over the next few months this should take hold too!
