Sunday, 19th May 10.00 - 13.00

Want to learn more about the aquatic life that calls Deptford Creek home? Then join us on our fish survey!

This session will be using sampling methods and techniques shown to us by Tanya Ferry, who has worked on the Tidal Thames for the EA fisheries team and also runs a small not-for-profit survey of the Medway for juvenile fish.

This survey is part of a larger project looking at all wildlife that uses the Creek including fish, birds, invertebrates, plants and even algae. The data will then be used to show habitat quality and inform future habitat management.

Spaces are limited, so book early, and please let us know if you can't attend.

Children are welcome but must be accompanied by the adult, and they must be 10+.

What to expect:

- the survey will last about 3 hours and is led by an experienced fish surveyor Tanya and conservationist Andy

- we will be surveying on a sloping tidal foreshore in waders (provided) - yes, you'll be in the river!

- whilst helping with surveying, you'll also be learning about the species we find in the river

What to bring?

- warm clothing, particularly trousers and socks 

- a change of clothing (especially for children)
