This is I think, is my best digiscoped image so far, the clarity is getting better.

Great diving beetle (Dytiscus marginalis)

Our garden pond has a good few of these wee beasties, ferocious as they are, they are part of the natural ecosystem.

This is the Dwex equipment that we are using and hopefully we can begin to teach the children how to use this.

Amendment

The harbour trip is now 5pm and not 3pm due to the school May Fair.

Dingwall Harbour – 3pm – Saturday 26th May

We will meet at 3pm in the car park at the very end of Ferry Road. We will then walk up the Conon along the shore, crossing the two level crossings at Pitglassie, avoiding any roads, and returning to the car park at 5.30pm.

You may have noticed that the indoor meetings have changed dates recently. This is for two reasons; firstly the large numbers attending in such a small space make it difficult to involve all the members. Secondly with the summer on the horizon we want to get outdoors much more. Therefore till the autumn we will be working on a one a month indoor and one a month outdoor meeting, with plenty of other meetings as indicated below…

The next indoor Wednesday meeting is 6th June at 3.15pm as normal. As we are beginning to log the wildlife in the adjacent woods we are planning some Friday evening walks around the woods. These will take place at 6.30pm on 18th and 25th May as well as June 1st. We will meet at the school and do a circular walk around Tulloch, concentrating on the woods adjacent to and above the school, and lasting about 1 hour. All ages welcome.

Please visit our images website at dwex.co.uk, some areas of the website are restricted to parents etc due to child protection policy, you will need to be enabled as a guest to view certain images containing the children, email me if you would like access.

We are currently short of helpers and as always we would welcome anyone willing to help.
