The construction zone in the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese appears to be at the beginning of being healed.

I stopped by the Destroyed Nesting Area of the Charles River White Geese yesterday and took some photos.

The situation is drastically changed from the photos of last month. The photos I printed showed the geese and the mess. The photos which I have not printed are photos without the geese showing the mess. Those latter photos are now no longer relevant. I anticipate I will hold those photos and later print my photos from April 13.

The use of the Destroyed Nesting Area for work on the BU Bridge project is apparently ended.

The entire work area has been tilled and apparently re-formed to more closely resemble the prior contour of the land.

The only disruption to the tilling were tire marks for a pick up truck parked near a door under the BU Bridge which apparently is a work room. That indicates I must have just missed the work.

The Charles River White Geese, as in my past visits, were visiting the former work area. This time, they were only visiting at the extremes, the southern / river end of the 100 foot construction zone next to the BU Bridge, and at the eastern / railroad end of the leg of construction zone in the northern / ramp portion of the Destroyed Nesting Area. They did not venture at all into the tilled area except in the first foot or so inside the plastic fence.

There were still some remnants of construction activities under Memorial Drive, not much.

Other work has been done between the western side of the BU Bridge and the underground portion of the pollution control plant.
