1 hour on Pig track clearing big puddle where Pig exits onto the forestry road before it heads back up towards Katore Road. Found source of the problem to be a long buried and blocked drainage pipe. Dug out pipe, cleaned out and re-seated. Drained puddles and ensured future rainfall will will flow to collection pointa and through the pipe to overland flow path.
