Saturday 3rd September 2011: Urban Wildlife

Dipping for creatures in the streamDipping for creatures in the stream Today we visited Brackenhill Urban Landscape Area to investigate the fauna that is present at this urban site. The session was led staff from the Field Studies Council based at Malham. We walked through the site discussing the recent and previous management that had occurred. We then focussed on the pond and adjacent stream. From the stram we were able to identify Stonefly nymphs, Leech, Freshwater shrimp, Flatworm, Cased cadis fly larvae and mayfly larvae. 

The session was attended by 7 people.
