VERNAL POND FIELD TRIPS TONIGHT AND TOMORROW NIGHT!

We had a nice little field trip last night to two pools in Ravenswood Park. Nice drizzle to keep everything wet. A few degrees on the cool side, but we did see two spring peepers hopping to the pool.  Also saw several spotted salamanders making the migration. Saw one wood frog in the pool and heard a few others quacking.  50 or so spotties in the pool and 50 million fairy shrimp.

We posted some photographs from last night so click the link to the right to take a look. We have some more good ones that will be posted later today. https://www.capeannvernalpondteam.org/

There will be a field trip tonight. Might not see any migration, but there should be some action in the pools. Meet at Walgreen’s parking lot on Main Street in Gloucester at 9 pm. Check the field trip guidelines on the website.

Then, on Thursday April 6, the weather should warm up and get wet. I think it will be a good night for migration. Same deal so meet at Walgreen’s at 9 pm.

See you out there,  Rick
