Pond dipping!

We watched an episode of ‘Minibeast adventures with Jess’ as part of our new ‘It’s a bug’s life’ theme. In the episode we learned all about pond skaters. We then decided to go pond dipping in the wildlife area pond to see what we might find.

Unfortunately, we didn’t find any pond skaters but we did find lots of; tadpoles, water hog-louses, diving beetle’s, pond snails and a sludge worm!

We had a great time pond dipping, why don’t you have a go at your local pond? You will be amazed at how many insects you will find!
