Brook in Rakwana. Km 127.3 on the Deniyaya road

This very small brook is flowing just between the Springwood estate and the Hatherleigh estate which are 2 tea plantations in Rakwana.

This small brook is very rich in animals, invertebrates and also vertebrates.

Here are some pictures of different larva and insect I have caught while trying to catch water mites.
