POND DRAGON

Bird Watching (UK) - - Welcome -

Join vol­un­teers of the Am­phib­ian and Rep­tile Con­ser­va­tion Trust for a night-time sur­vey of the breed­ing ponds of our wack­i­est am­phib­ian, the Great Crested Newt. Shine your torch care­fully to avoid overly dis­turb­ing th­ese crea­tures, but look dili­gently to spot a male sus­pended, mo­tion­less, in mid-wa­ter. A moun­tain range crests each male’s back and fire blazes on each belly. Should a fe­male ar­rive, the male starts to dance, arch­ing and corkscrew­ing and thrash­ing. April is breed­ing sea­son for LAND­SCAPE
