Rain over 3 days, over 150 ml meant water tables need checking and possible slipping on the dam track so a long walk with a friend meant that water is now draining away as I used a grubber to clean out the water tables. It was worth the visit with the sounds of rushing water all around us, puddles to splash in and the joy of reaching the dam, our destination.
We have been spending the Heritage Fund grant from KCDC we are with new signage including ones for safety and Charlie Arcus and the Corrigan Homestead sign. These last 2 from the BannerExpress company in Auckland. It is important to join with others increasing the area covered with new bait stations and traps with the effort being made by us here, hopefully with help from volunteers. It is an ongoing journey in conversation with DOC representatives I talked with at the Fielddays at Mystery Creek. There are new types of traps being developed as seen at the No 8 Wire innovation section of the field day.
