Tadpoles in the Wild!

This video was taken in the Peatlands Park in Dungannon, Northern Ireland in April 2021.

 

It shows the bog pond absolutely full of tadpoles, all wriggling around towards the surface of the water. 

Pond Dipping

This video is also from the Peatlands Park. It's definitely not a tadpole, but do you know what it is?

It is the larva of a chironimid fly, sometimes known as a rat tailed maggot. It is about 10mm long, and if you closely, you might see it move a little!

This little guy isn't a tadpole (obviously!) but he is a tadpole snail!

He is a detritivore, which means that he helps keep the water clean by breaking down plants and algae. This little guy is keeping the water clean for our tadpoles! Good job!
