Mini beasts in north Pembs

Stone Fly on the prowl
Today was time for the quarterly invertebrate monitoring on the river Cneifa and Pedran, both tributaries of the river Cych in Cwm Cych. By carrying out regular kick sampling and monitoring the number of invertebrates found it is hoped to build up a picture of the health of the streams and rivers in the area. Both streams were found to have a good population of stonflies, olives and caddis (cased and caseless), although the Cneifa seemed to have more than its share of midge larvae. A bit rather cold on the hands but a great way to spend a sunday morning with the kids.
