Pond Dipping

Cubs enjoyed a lovely sunny evening at the side of Lymm Dam whilst Pond Dipping under the guidance of Ranger Tim.

They managed to catch lots of interesting creatures including: Water flea, Waterlouse, Caddisfly larva, Midge larva, Pond skater, PIKE (Yes a pike!!!), Water boatman, Lesser water boatman, Tadpole, Pond snail, Ramshorn snail, Damselfly larva, Water scorpion, Mosquito larva skin, Swan mussel and Water measurer.

The only creatures that went into the water were the ones that live there.

Well done to all the Cubs who helped to tidy up the dam by netting the rubbish that some other people had left behind.

Thanks again to Ranger Tim for a great evening.
