Thanks to Leigh residents all the sedges funded by Auckland Council’s EIF fund have been planted. On 12 November, Richard and his son Troy planted 49 sedges and on 17 November Susan, Neil and Sheryl planted the remaining lot of ~70. All the previous plantings are looking very good. We’ve been so lucky to have had regular rain to keep the ground wet and dunking them in the stream before planting seems to have been good for them.
Jo Evans and Sue Gibbings have been been continuing to check the stoat line and Cam has also been working in the area. At his last visit Cam reported the following tally; 2 ship rats, 2 rabbits, 1 hedgehog and 2 stoats.
