The team managed to get 8,12,and 9 bait stations and monitoring stations on the smaller islands of Peashopper, Foremans and Crow island respectively. They put more stations out on St Helens too. Skipper john Peacock did a marvellous job of 'punting' the team around the islands and staying in radio contact for the next 'manoeuvre', but any skipper would have been defeated when trying to get a team and all the equipment onto Round Island (steep sided with step ladder), so they will try that again next week.
