night time survey 6th December 2010

Went out to look into the pond with a torch. The inverts seemed to be doing fine. Spotted two adult water beetles under the ice along with the flicking movement of the mayfly larvae.

The pond does need to be a pond complex. I am planning two pools made from cutting back turf and digging out the soil adding some water proof membrane then fill back with play sand and then one will be covered in stones.

Not whether this will work but I do want to provide a mosaic of pond habitats. I may dig a depth of greater than 20cm to really flip the convention relating to wildlife ponds.
