Benthic invertebrates

Last Monday, it was time again for the Benthic invertebrates workshop at The Brickworks.  It used to take place at Riverdale Farm but the ponds are so murky there, it was always very hard to find any bugs.  So, for the second year in a row, the workshop was held at this different location.

I'm posting here some pics of the evening. We found some 10 different species of bugs which means that the results were pretty good.

Quite a good turnout

Even closer.

The workshop leader is from EcoSpark.

Volunteers willing to wade in the pond.

We need to use lots of water to filter the mud.
