Dale Fort Field Centre Pembrokeshire was their base between 18th-22nd June, where the group developed their understanding of ecological sampling techniques, data handling and statistical testing as part of their A Level studies.
Subject Leader of Biology, Miss Sally Jones, said: “The weather was beautiful as we worked along the rocky shore, took a trip in a speedy rib boat and enjoyed getting muddy in the nearby salt marsh.
