The boardwalk, wetland and marginal beds are 99% finished over at Kay Park in Kilmarnock. It has been a long slog for all the guys, in pretty difficult conditions, so thanks to all of them for sticking it out!
Working on this was completely different from our Bearsden project – here there was silt instead of mud! We created planting beds by moving the silt in between the boards.
The formwork for all the concrete pads to sit the boardwalk went in before Christmas and we built the structure in the snow in January!
While all this work was going on the swan family still had water to guddle around in and the huge eels werel sliding around in the water quite happily.
