Due to the current Covid 19 restrictions, I decided to carry out this work party by myself.
I worked on two of the original swims which were created for us by the EA about ten years ago. The Willow berms they installed to stop the swims eroding, had become very overgrown. I cleared the area first, then set about pruning the willow back to the original height. These swims will now be easy to maintain in the future.
I hope once the water levels are restored to summer levels, the Crucian Carp and Tench start to feed in the vicinity of these two swims once the new season begins on June 16th! The rest of the swims will only need a tidy up prior to the new season starting, because they have already had the same work completed.
