Year 12 Biology Trip - 28th June 2012

On Thursday 28th June, the year 12 biology students took part in a day of field work studies at the Knapp and Paper Mill nature reserve in rural Worcestershire. A regular event in the AS program, this is usually an opportunity for students to develop their ecology and sampling techniques while working in what is doubtless a very beautiful setting.

Everyone was warned beforehand of the need for wellies and waterproofs but I don't think any amount of prior warning prepared us for the almighty storm that greeted us as we approached the reserve! As the heavens well and truly opened and roads became quickly blocked, we reached the reserve and headed for the newly built shelter hut to sit the storm out and go over the paperwork. While it all looked quite grim for a while, thankfully the skies cleared later in the morning and the students were able to head out in to certain parts of the reserve to carry out some of the field work. In what was obviously very unplanned and difficult conditions the students were an absolute credit to themselves and the school.

They remained patient throughout and yet still determined to complete what work they could. We thankfully did manage to go for a quick walk through most of the reserve before heading home, allowing us to appreciate what a lovely place this is when the weather isn't so lousy. Well done to all students involved on the day and to Miss Hampshire and Miss Aktar for their assistance. Hopefully the sun will be out next year!
