This week the "Green Team" have been clearing vegetation from the banks of the lake. They started work beyond the bridge. Today, by midday, they had completed almost all the western bank.
The work is needed to ensure that alder saplings and other trees are kept clear of the water. There are enough trees dropping their leaves in the lake as it is without allowing more to develop.
You can just work out how far they have got around the lake from the boat in the bay at the northern end of the lake.
Later, after they had left for the day, I walked the grounds again and took a picture from the northern end of the lake.
You can see the small island is now clear and the work is nearly complete.
