As the pilot was manoeuvring the aircraft prior to parking, the right wing tip area struck a steel fence corner-post. The post was bent and several strands of barbed wire were broken, as the wing rode over the post. The pilot was unaware that the aircraft had struck the post, and the damage to the aircraft was not reported until the following day.
