Join DWT staff for a double evening and morning session at the Avenue Washlands to help survey newts and other amphibians in the reserves ponds. During Monday’s evening session you will get chance to set bottle traps and carry out torchlight surveys as well as have an introduction to amphibian surveys – how and why we survey.  The following morning we will check the traps we set the night before, recording and  safely releasing what’s been caught.
