More rare Triops sites uncovered in Scotland

The BBC News site has reported that more of the protected Triops cancriformis colonies have been found in South West Scotland at Caerlaverock reserve in Dumfries and Galloway. This is good news for this species as perviously it was only known to exist in one secret place in Scotland and in another in England in the New Forest.
More can be found at BBC News and at the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust site.
