BIODIVERSITY

The diversity and surrounding habitat of these ponds, with their varied size and shape, dense or sparse vegetation. The substrates also vary with gravel, sand, clay, silt and muddy sediment. All this has resulted in some of the ponds becoming "Species Rich" where notable species, such as Black Darter, Ruddy Darter and the Emerald Damselfly, thrive here.

A total of up to 17 Dragonfly species frequent these particular [SRP] ponds the, Emperor, Southern, Common, Brown and Migrant Hawkers, Black [notable], Ruddy [notable] and Common Darters, Emerald [notable] Common, Blue, Large Red and Azure Damselflies, Banded Demoiselle [interesting] 4 Spotted and Broad-bodied Chasers. It should be noted that the remaining ponds have fewer numbers of species, but are still unique and equally important to the value of the site.
