Motuora Island Tank Set-up

At last a clear fine day for a visit to Motuora. Today the main task is creating a level base for the two huge water tanks and then spinning them round and locating them ready for plumbing in.

Water tank tipped onto sand base
This all went very well.

Slight adjustments

Lots more sand needed for the tank base.

Other tasks of the day were cleaning the seabird nest boxes and burrows and identifying the plants in the nursery.

And a chance to photograph a dotterel in breeding plumage and a kereru.
