Mayfly Mayhem!

We paid another visit to Spark Bridge and the River Crake during half term. The weather was beautiful, warm and sunny and due to the recent good spell, the river wasn’t running fast or high.

There was a good turnout, some of whom had joined us before so it was nice to see familiar faces. Four brilliant volunteers helped with dipping and identification and throughout the morning we found lots of lovely minibeasts including stoneflies and mayflies which tell us that the River Crake is a reasonably healthy river.

The session was finished off with some badge making and colouring-in.
