We started the day in cold, but glorious sunshine! After having a hearty breakfast, we took a boat trip along the broads, towards the village of Irstead. Along the way we saw some amazing sights such as swans, otters and marsh harriers. Although along the way, the rain poured down and we all got soaked (thank goodness for waterproofs)!
We learnt all about the ecology of the broads, then spent time dyke dipping, identifying all the invertebrates that we could find. After a break for lunch, we spent the afternoon being scientists and testing the quality of the water.
After a few thunderstorms we’ve all gotten used to the rain now and no longer mind if the rest of the week is rain or shine!
