Today Five Islands school ‘Blue class’ joined the project to survey the coastal creatures on their local beach.

We had a tick-list of species to look out for and found 8 of the 12 species, including Greater black-backed gulls, shags, pipe worm fish and broad-clawed porcelain crab.

We had a great time in the lovely sunny weather, and many of the young people look forward to exploring their beaches with their family and friends during the summer holidays, and know how to protect wildlife whilst out and about discovering amazing creatures.
