An invertebrate survey was conducted by Dave Bentley Ecology Services for the Tanyptera Project, in support of the Cheshire Wildlife Trust, in August and October 2019 and in March 2020, at the Hatchmere Site of Special Scientific Interest and land to its north west, in the Delamere Forest in Cheshire West. The survey was designed to provide a baseline aquatic and wetland invertebrate survey against which the effects of a proposed Beaver introduction project can be measured over time. Some of the work took place within the proposed Beaver compound whilst the bulk of the work was to assess the invertebrates of the Hatchmere Site of Special Scientific Interest. Consent was obtained from Natural England for the survey.
