1.   The weather was so calm that we couldn't define which direction the wind was coming from!

2.   As mentioned in previous data portal entries, though I enter the correct date and time of each photo, after saving the file and then viewing, every single time the dates have reverted to the date/time the files were uploaded to the portal.

Therefore the data sheets date/time need to be referred instead.

Water gauge at bridge needs cleaning - measurement was approximated in this visit.

Tourists once again questioned us about the sign indicating the river water was not suitable for swimming.

1.  Gauge under bridge needs cleaning, hard to read measurements.

2.  River nearly perched as seaweed was piled up at the narrow mouth.

Saw shoals of fish 10-15cm under bridge, unfortunately unable to identify them.

Error found in Data Sheet after it was scanned.   Low tide shown as 2.06 (am) should have been 2.06 pm (24 hr clock not used on Internet Lorne Tide Times).

I incorrectly added the site number Ep4-4 into the Data Sheet Photopoint field and could not delete it.

#12551 22 Nov 2018 Approved Notes:

Once again the date and time of the photo points wasn't saved after data entry.  On review these had reverted to date and time of when photos/form were downloaded to USB.   This has happened for several months now.   Don't know what the ramifications for data analysis will be.

#12474 24 Oct 2018 Approved Notes:

Deidre - Please note that there is still a problem with the software as although I carefully enter the date/time each photo was taken and then save, when I go into view, the dates all revert to the day/time I entered the data!


However in Edit mode the date/time is correct!

#12407 20 Sep 2018 Approved Notes:

Deidre.   I don't know why I have never noticed this before but I see that though I change the date on all the photos to the day/time when photo is taken it seems to revert to the date/time when photos were uploaded into the portal in the view window.  This also applies to the data sheet uploaded.   Tho on the portal the date is correct.  Then when I go into Edit to change things the dates look correct.


Is their an explanation for this?

The water gauge under the bridge is still dirty (as it was last month).  We could only estimate water height.

Saw some water birds for the first time for months. 1 cormorant and 2 herons.

One heron resting in reeds - first time we have seen any wild life for some months.

Omission on Data Sheet.  Just noticed when I reviewed this scan that I had omitted to enter the number of photos taken at each sight.   Apologies.   However the number taken is as usual.

Problem!  First time I tried to upload data sheet .pdf file it was unsuccessful. So I tried a second time.   However I now find there are 2 copies and I don't know how to delete one!

#11931 22 Mar 2018 Approved Notes:

Please note there were very high winds and stormy conditions and yet the Beaufort scale table on the data sheet's B.No 1, only went up to 5 (Fresh Breeze) so when I came to enter the data into Estuary Watch and I noticed the Beaufort Scale allowed for more severe conditions I up graded the scale.   So please be aware that scanned sheet will not truly reflect either B Scale or Sea State readings.

Can I suggest that when the Data Sheet is updated next time both Table 1 and 2 be adjusted?   At the same time  Photopoint Site table needs to include at least another line as there are more than 2 sites on the Erskine River.

Allow please note that I am still unsure whether I am entering the correct times for the High and Low Tides - perhaps we could talk about that when we next catch up?
