Survey 10th December 2010

Looking at the ice covered pond this evening I have noticed a few dead beetle larvae in the actual ice itself. The majority of the inverts though are happily underneath the ice in reasonable numbers. Plenty of mayfly larvae upside down on the underside of the ice. A few beetle larvae are also underneath the ice alive and kicking.

No melting of the ice, no balls, and definitely no smashing of the ice has taken place. The pond has not frozen solid despite it being under 20cm deep. It looks like the advice is spot on from Pond Conservation.
