Loo with a View!

One of the more interesting jobs for the ranger team this week was making repairs to the Eco Loo at the Wild Campsite, before the first brave campers of 2014 at the end of January.

We were hoping for a frosty day to freeze the contents and make the job pleasanter! It was actually a sunny day but the smell wasn't too bad at all!

The repairs involved the installation of a drainpipe in the loo which will hopefully in the summer help create convection a current up and out of the loo, circulating air and keeping things a bit fresher! We got to use a new gadget attached to the drill to cut a hole big enough for a drainpipe to go though which was fun!

This involved climbing up a  ladder to the roof of the loo where the sunny day made for some nice elevated panoramic pictures.

The Wild Camp is booking up for 2014 already if you want to find out more about it and how to book click on the Wicken Wild Camp page at the top of the blog.

Other things I've been up to this week include a visit to Littleport Primary School to give some advice on a new pond and nature area they have created and a meeting with the Student Ambassadors at Cambridge University to plan their programme of events for 2013 which include a day at White Fen and a screening of the Project Wild Thing Film for Students.
