Firstly they were challenged (in groups) to prove that the beach and dunes can be a habitat, as at first glance there looks to be nothing alive there. Finding the creatures wasn't any problem - photographing them was!
Not sure whose idea this was for beach habitat!!!
Our second challenge was a scavenger hunt whilst returning to the pier, then after lunch the children created a picture with their scavenged items. We still don't know whose was judged the best!
All in all, despite the weather, we all had a great time.
