Another wonderful summer evening with Rupert Higgins. We first walked through the meadow and sweeping our nets found a range of crickets (one with a leg missing), grasshoppers, moths, shield bugs and a very small toad. One area of taller vegetation was particularly popular with white legged damsel flies.
By the track we found a dragon fly - a migrant hawker - before pond-dipping at the lagoon to find water boatmen & water snails as well as a small frog and some small fish. It was then back to Beese's for refreshment.
A big thank you also to Beese's Riverside Bar & Tea Gardens for their support of the Wild Wednesday's.
