Optimis takes part in a Great Crested Newt Survey

Justin Wickersham, Managing Director at Optimis was delighted to be invited to join Joanne Makin, Ecologist from The Landscape Partnership on an ecology survey on one of his projects.

Following earlier visits Joanne knew that Great Crested Newts were present so Justin was pretty sure that he would get a good photo opportunity!

The survey involved travelling to the site and setting up the Great Crested Newt traps.  Returning to the ponds at dark with a torch to search for Great Crested Newts and then returning in the morning to remove the traps and identify any Great Crested Newts present as well as search for eggs.

As you can tell from the picture Great Crested Newts were present!
