Building the outdoor coops 14 July 2011

Nige and I were at the flat, Roland and Liz were in a nearby town for the night. The last two chicks hatch 0330hrs.

It was a full day of constructing coops, Nige, Roland and myself all outdoors facing a huge amount of work yet to do. We grafted all day but it seemed to go very slowly. We all kept going until dark. Liz was tasked with looking after the birds in the flat and was getting her routine sorted.
