It is always a great pleasure to work with the pupils and staff from Greystoke school, so well behaved and very keen to learn.
Today was part one of three days where years 1-2 and 3-6 learned about the life cycles of invertebrates, the environment, food chains and water flow measurement, this will be soon followed by a couple of field trips.
The amount of invertebrate life found in such a small stream today was absolutely stunning. Hundreds of mayfly, caddis and stone fly along with the ubiquitous shrimp.
