Just a quick update. The amphib is going well and the winter has been busy all over.......

Seen here swamp logging at Herstmonceux Castle, Sussex :thumbup: We desilted a part of the top pond and removed loads of pond weed from the second one, pictures to follow. We've just gone in to remove the self sown willow and alder choking up the pond and taking all the light. Maybe more de-silting next year? :D

She is in strong order and goes well. I just want to upgrade and get a long arm for my EX150. Its a VC15 by the way. Thanks for the interest

I see there is a VC15 on Fleabay asking for around the 5 Large spot, they are a good bit lighter than those VC20's but they can get Earth bound (stuck) easy in bad muck, the 20's are a good bit of trouble off a firm setting unless every care is taken.

I managed to stop the pictures flashing about and noticed its the same VC15 in your pictures Clive that's being flogged off.
