Stackpole Day 2

Today was another day of good weather. After breakfast we set of down to Freshwater West to take part in some rock pooling.  We discovered the beach is famous as the location of the Shell house where Dobbie dies in Harry Potter.

Both groups went off with nets to find a range of animals that live in the rock pools and found crabs, fish, prawns, etc. Afterwards we looked carefully and learned a little about the animals before releasing them back into their natural environment.

In the afternoon we split into 2 groups for different activities. Kemble went off to learn about the history of the Stackpole Estate and to carry out some conservation work.

Siddington went off to try their hand at mountain biking. It was great fun riding through all the muddy trails.

For tea we all ate sausages, potatoes and vegetables and are heading off for an exciting nightline activity before bed.
