Pond Dipping March 16th 2013

Hello friends,

The second Naturewatch Walk on January the 19th was very well attended and we were treated to just the right amount of snow to make the Cemetery Park even prettier and as ever there were plenty of birds to make an appearance, green woodpecker, robin and wren to name just a few. We will be meeting again on the 16th of March at 2 pm outside Mile End tube and making our way to the ecology ponds in Mile End Park, just beside the Regents Canal and before Roman Road. We are going to try some pond dipping as well as watching for birds. If you are bringing small children please watch them carefully around the water, I can't swim! I'm looking forward to seeing you all for our next adventure, spring is in the air already and there are snowdrop, crocus and daffodils flowering on plenty of our green spaces and birds everywhere, in the last couple of days I have seen greenfinch, goldfinch and longtailed tit in respectable numbers. Keep your ears and eyes open there's so much to see, have fun.
