Day 4–Night tour

This morning I did the perimeter check. This was super tricky in the wet as it was a bit flooded and very slippery. On one hand I regretted wearing my gumboots as they are heavy and don’t bend and on the other hand with the amount of water my hiking shoes would have been filled with water.

After breakfast I worked on enclosure repair. We must have replaced half the enclosure. New beams and fixed up all the swings.

The itch to ride was too much for John so he tried out one of the hire bikes…loving the crazy coloured spoke upgrade.

He went for a ride through the local area with Elke and a vet from the other rescue centre while I worked on Loris enrichment.
