Family fun –join us for a 1h dipping session on Sunday 20th August to see what underwater creatures we can find in the new wildlife pond near Gid Lane, Froyle (see plan). Children will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult. All equipment will be provided and numbers are limited so it is essential to book by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org., stating preference for 1.30pm or 2.30pm session.
Dragonflies have already found the new habitat as well as pond skaters, water boatmen and whirligig beetles. Advice from wildlife pond experts is to let the pond colonise naturally over time. So please do not introduce any fish, aquatic species or pond plants because this could bring in diseases or potentially invasive non-native species.
Some photos taken on the day.
