Ponds and Arty Frogs

Wednesday, August 17th 2016

The day started at 6am for the team here, we were ringing meadow pipits on the training area before returning to the reserve for 9 to prepare for the event of the morning ‘Ponds’.

There were plenty of froglets and toadlets about, requiring careful walking. The pic below is one of the diving beetles we were lucky to pond dip


Here are a few snaps of the group having pond dipped, then into the classroom for some creative time…. this case making a frog eyes out of egg boxes.

and frogs!

Please come to our next event on Wednesday the 24th August, on 'Tracks and Signs'. Visit the Web site for booking.
