Pond Dipping

We have been pond dipping at Blackmoor Pond every month from late spring to late summer since 2018 when our Kingfisher Flyway project work carried out work on this pond. The purpose of this is to monitor the pond life and see if we can measure any improvements. It is also to improve our pond dipping skills! We use OPAL resources to help identify the mini-creatures we find and also their points based system to assess our pond. We also pond dip at Englemere pond once a year and are very happy to come and dip in your garden pond to help you find out what you have there. Please email us at ascot.wildlife@gmail.com for more information.

Everyone is very welcome to join us or look in to find out what we have found. We plan our sessions to coincide with children coming past on their way home from school.

Dates for 2022: They are usually on the 1st Wednesday of the month at 3:30 pm at Blackmoor Pond which is at the end of Sutherland Chase SL5 8TE Google maps link here
