The dockyard area has held a fascination for all of the staff each time we have performed an inspection and they regularly vie to see who can lead the examination of that area.
Laura shot some photos this time to put on the blog. The rangers and staff, with the exception of Ted Wilson, have again been quite helpful.
Well, we have come to the same impass as in previous years. Ted Wilson continues to resist our inspection of the large cavernous area formed by one of the tunnels that was not fully built out. As no one has time to pursue this further and we have no authority to forcibly enter we must again omit this area from this year’s inspection. Fortunately, our lack of inspection in recent years seems not to have had any deleterious effect on controlling pests on the island as we continue to find the island pest-free.
