Spring Visitors to our Floating Platforms:
We deployed two floating platforms again this Spring, including motion activated cameras.
The platforms are made of cedar, are anchored near the inlet to Silver Lake, and include some over-arching branches for protection from predators and some hay for a softer bed. No bait or enticement is provided other than a floating island space.
The camera memory card this week included photographs of some common and some uncommon visitors.
We plan to keep watching into the summer to see how the platforms will become an integral part of the lake environment.
