We have been invited to survey the pond at Truscott which was cleared anew a couple of years back. I have named Sue as leader because she has all our pond dipping kit and has taken the lead with the OPAL survey sheets but I am sure that we will all assist. There are dragon & damsel flies as well so it will be interesting to see what has colonised the pond and we will look out for signs of other fauna as well.
Although the detailed programme needs to be decided, thanks to the kind permission from the farmers, Mr & Mrs Parsons, we are welcome to visit the woods as a wildlife group. Many thanks also to the Montgomery's for advice and support.
