On the third of August, despite swelter, superfluous vegetation around the bigger pond in Nowogród Bobrzański quarry was tidied up. Thanks to this, heaps of compost were created and right away hatchlings of Sand Lizards (Lacerta agilis argus) started using them for basking, shelter and foraging. Also many hatchlings of Grass Snakes (Natrix natrix) were observed. Some of the Water Frogs (Pelophylax esculentus complex) and Smooth Newts (Lissotriton vulgaris) that we found have not metamorphosed yet.
