Building a picture of area’s ponds

The North East Biodiversity Partnership has launched a new community survey initiative, called Pooling our Ponds.

They are asking for your help to build up a more accurate picture of the region’s ponds – to do this, they have developed a recording pack available as a free download, available at

The pack is aimed at all levels of recorder, from novice to the more experienced.

It contains identification cards for some key species. For more information telephone 01224 395189 or 01224 395000.
