HMS Duck Island has been launched onto the pond. Home built by Richard Stott the island has stayed afloat and is tethered in place by a 5m chain. The top is covered with a thin layer of soil and a flexible ramp up now awaits a moorhen or duck or whatever fancies making a new home out in the middle of the pond. Well done Richard for getting this launched!
