There was great enthusiasm from class three at the pond last Friday. We discussed what sort of species might use freshwater habitats and then had a go at dipping for them. We got a good view of the following species in our inspection tray, which the children then identified from charts: Horsehair worm, Freshwater louse, Flat worm, Ramshorn snail, Pond snail, Water mint and Duck weed. There were lots of great questions and some great answers too. We will hopefully come back in the spring/summer to look for signs of amphibians.
