Break through at the island

Yesterday one of the causeways of clay was broken through to move towards completion of the island. The pictures below show the progress of this exciting piece of landscape work.

Water levels in the pond will drop temporarily as water floods the channel around the island, but these will soon return to normal with some rainfall.

The reed plants will now be planted around the island, with gaps left to allow for fishing and Model Boating.
