22nd May 2023 - a small group of ANW members joined Nancy O at the Abington Ford for the monthly RiverCare Sampling of the river. The group was also joined by Ruth Hawksley from the local BCN Wildlife Trust group, to help with some of the identification. These results are reported centrally to RiverCare, and help to assess how well our aquatic wildlife is faring.
A good number of species were identified, many of which in good numbers as shown in the table below. Andy M took a few photos of some of the main types of creature found.
