Outdoor Event, 10.30am-1.30pm
A trip to explore the variety of ponds around Druridge Bay Country Park. Druridge Bay is rich in ponds, pools and puddles and they are strikingly varied, even ponds close to one another. This results in a richness of animals and plants at the landscape scale. Adjacent to the Country Park are large permanent ponds, mysterious dune slack ditches and newly created sites. The trip should give a flavour of the wealth of pond wildlife to be found in just one small area.
Meet in the car park (pay and display) at Druridge Bay Country Park which is signposted from the A1089 3miles south of Amble (grid ref NZ272998). Wellington boots would be useful.
