What Lurks Beneath

Monday, June 29th 2015

One of our regular visitors has brought a waterproof camera to Foxglove over the last few weeks to try and get some images of our underwater creatures in their natural habitat. So far the camera has been deployed in the scrapes and snapped this water level picture just before taking the plunge.


The next image captured below the surface shows a small proportion of our tadpole population in varying stages of their development.


Finally you can see our resident Sticklebacks along with the tadpoles, making their way through the pond.

Thank you Ian for providing us with these pictures and giving us a rare glimpse into the underwater habitat here at Foxglove. We look forward to seeing the results of you next visit.
