Pond Dipping Success!

A very productive morning down the Wetland today was had by all. The Ranger Service held a pond dipping event which was so popular we had to turn people away, but we do have another one on the 27th May but placed are limited again. Below are some images of creatures the avid pond dippers found.

They include;
Leech, Water Boatman (greater and lesser), Water Flea (thousands of), Tadpoles, Pond Skater, Flatworm, Pond Snails, Mayfly Nymphs and Water Hoglouse.

Keep an eye out for our other events advertised on the blog and at Rufford Country Park in the courtyard.
