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. Two major highlights for many students were catching crabs with bacon bits off the Dale pontoon and a stroll around Skomer Island on our final day.”
She added that Skomer did not disappoint with students able to closely observe puffins, kittiwakes, fulmar, guillemots, razorbills, gulls, oystercatchers, shag and several grey seals..
