A small amount of good news was salvaged yesterday though. One of our members brought two small two man dinghy’s to site. Four of us saved 13 chickens that had managed to cling onto life on top of their floating coup and other floating debris overnight. These are now at home in the garden of our organisations secretary.

Finally, a member of the public saw one of our bee hives floating on its back and managed to drag it onto the riverbank. We found it yesterday afternoon with bees flying in and out of it and plan to move it today to a safe location. We would have done this yesterday but our bee handling kit is also floating around in our shipping container.
