“This Wednesday brought us not one, but two BioBlitzes! So while Bristol was treated to UWE’s BioBlitz I went over to Royal Holloway University just on the edge of London to see what could be found there. Yet again the campus was pretty stunning and they had some great woodland and a pond which was full of life, along with lots of schoolchildren eager to find it. Before the event had even started and I was stumbling about the campus trying to find my bearings I spotted something mammalian splashing away from me in a stream and during the BioBlitz itself we made some great finds, including a pair of smooth newts and a frog called Bob. Everyone had a great time and impressively not a single person fell in the pond! Thanks to Phil, Jerome and all their volunteers for putting on another great event! Just a few more BioBlitzes to go in 2010 now, and the next one is tomorrow in Canterbury, so hopefully see you there!”
