  4. 4. Making  Space  for  Nature:   Professor  Sir  John  Lawton   Recommendation  4.   Catchment Based Approach Partnerships for Action Public  bodies  and  statutory  undertakers  planning  the   management  of  water  resources  should:     •  Make  space  for  water  and  wildlife  along  rivers  and  around   wetlands;     •  Restore  natural  processes  in  river  catchments,  including  in   ways  that  support  climate  change  adaptation  and  mitigation;   and     •  Accelerate  the  programme  to  reduce  nutrient  overload,   particularly  from  diffuse  pollution.

  19. 19. 4.6 Macro-invertebrate survey: 4.6.1 Methodology: Macro-invertebrate sampling was completed at all of the monitoring sites, excluding site 4. The sampling procedure was compliant with the Environment Agency's operational instruction manual produced in 2008 (Technical reference material: freshwater macro-invertebrate sampling in rivers). A one minute manual search was initially carried out at each site, followed by kick sampling using the three minute, pond, net sampling method. The net used was a standard 1mm mesh sampling net. The kick sampling technique involves disturbing the substrate by foot and capturing any displaced invertebrates as they drift downstream with the flow into the sampling net. All available habitat types at each site were sampled proportionately and for a total time of three minutes. Collected samples were placed into a container and then preserved using IMS (industrial methylated spirits). All samples were first examined on the bank side for dead invertebrates. The physical characteristics of each site, including depth, substrate and flow type, a subjective assessment of turbidity and any other relevant observations were recorded. Estimates of algae and macrophyte cover were also recorded. Policy  &  delivery  framework   Working  to  generate  new  evidence   •  Critical  analysis  of  existing  data  sources   At a later date, the samples were sieved using a 500-micron sieve and placed into a sorting tray. Where possible, macro-invertebrates were identified to species level with the exception of Oligochaeta which were identified to class, and Simuliidae, Sphaeridae and Chironomidae which were identified to family level. Factors making it impossible to identify other macro-invertebrates to species level include size or crucial identification features missing. •  Generation  of  supplementary  data  &   evidence   observed at Site 2 could be indicative of the more favourable habitat cond habitat restoration works. To substantiate these results, additional monitori The failure of the Tippets Brook to support a healthy fish population is availability of suitable in-stream habitats, as a result of extensive ch agricultural diffuse pollution, causing elevated levels of in-stream sediment The families present in a sample contribute to the derivation of a biological (BMWP) score for each site. This scoring system was developed as a way of assessing the biological quality of rivers and streams. The method assigns a score to each taxon ranging from 1 to 10 depending on their capacity to tolerate pollution. Those most tolerant to pollution have a low score, whilst those least tolerant have a high score. The sum of the taxa scores from a sample is the Biological Monitoring Working Party (BMWP) score. The BMWP score, and ASPT (average score per taxon) were calculated for each sample. Figure 26: Semi-quant Tyrrell’s  Court,  using  b equipment.
