Chilly Mursley!

Well, thankfully, the weather has warmed up a fair bit since I took my water sample in Mursley, Buckinghamshire back in early March! It was so cold, in fact, that I had to (safely) break some ice to get to my sample and the gloves didn't offer much protection against the chilly water.

The water body itself is a 'newly-created' area located in a field belonging to my parents-in-law. The area (coincidentally next to Mursley's iconic water tower) is naturally low-lying and boggy so a natural pond has been created to attract wildlife and promote biodiversity.
