Building an Island by moonbi

Building an Island

The Island has been started , Floating digger plus a few helpers. A boardwalk is being built the other side of the lake.This year has been about the Heath where I live, This is that story and hopefully some interesting images to tell this story, in two images per day. For twelve weeks.
What a lovely and interesting record for posterity!

I might have missed the explanation in a previous post, but do you know why they are building an island? Is it for recreation purposes? It does look like quite an undertaking, must be interesting to watch.

@clarekatharine And it’s only just started I think will change the future look of the Heath for ever.
@jacqbb they were very well suited up and they had life jackets on as well.
@lmsa They are doing a lot right across the Heath, part of the reason for the island is to stop erosion of the banks on that side of the lake plus habitat for the wild life. Its costing around 600k. I think it will look good and needs managing ecologically. watch this space Thank you for your interest Louise.
