Obviously it has to be low tide. Hopefully cloudy ( was yesterday ) so not too hot.
My tools of trade are these.
At home remove rings, watch etc so they can't fall into the mud. Even a hat can get wafted away so no hat. Leave phone and drink in shade on land near workplace.
This is today's haul laid in the sun on the grass to get mowed up.Some are small trees.
Others tiny seeds just making root.( several hundreds here )
Some neighbours do the same most don't. But out frontage along the water is nicer than theirs.We also spent a lot early on with rocks to retain the edge.
It will always be an ongoing task but we want the waterway to stay open and clear as when its nice its really nice.
Sorry up wrong way - this shows my side clear. See my footprints.
There are plenty of nearby spots with mangroves for young fish to hide.
I also found this dis-guarded Canadian goose egg in the long grass - something had pecked it long since and it looks mummified.( good riddance! Canadian geese are filthy things...so much poo everywhere on the grass.)
I'm feeling quite virtuous after my effort (and I didn't get bogged or fall over! )
R did some yesterday too with a push hoe.
