Microscopy of algae in neighbour’s pond (Lichfield)

My neighbour invited me to take a sample of the rather green stagnant water in small back garden pond – I concentrated the algae in the water by pouring it through a filter made from a kitchen paper absorbent wipe folded twice and opened up into a cone.

A short video can be seen together with photos from the investigation below.

The next challenge will be for me to identify everything in the pictures!…..That is for another post! And probably another day.

Andy
