On Tuesday 12.6 I went to the sandpit because I had to check whether everything is prepared for the international jury visit on Wednesday. I found out, that another two pitfall traps are missing. This time it was one trap at the locality no. 3 (pine restoration, picture 4) and one trap at the locality no. 4 (sedimenting pool). Trap at the sedimenting pool locality was definitly dug out by an animal.
The grass snake (Natrix natrix, picture 1) was one of the first animals I saw during my Tuesday visit in the Planá pit. European tree frog (Hyla arborea, picture 2) tadpoles have all four legs and will go through the metamorphosis, soon. Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos, picture 3) female visited me at the locality no. 1 (wetland) and walked just a few meters in front of me. Ants (Formicidae) are building their highways in the sand (picture 5).
In the pools grows common water-plantain (Alisma plantago-aquatica, picture 6), Red list bladderwort (Utricularia australis, picture 7) grows in the ditch (picture 8). In the picture 9 you can see pea moss (Sphagnum sp.) which grows near one of the pools.
