Biologists explore Exmoor, sand dunes and shores

It was a wet and windy visit to Somerset undertaken by the 6.2 biologists recently. Staying at the Field Studies Centre at Nettlecombe Court in a secluded valley on the eastern edge of Exmoor National Park, the students visited Exmoor to look at invertebrates in a stream, Braunton to see the impressive sand-dune system, and Watchet to work on a rocky shore. They returned to school a bit tired and windswept – but much the wiser on ecology. View photos.
