    Newt trapping

    13 May 2019

    Here at Harper I've seen a great emphasis upon practical skills. I set traps late at night, and collected them early the next morning to be greeted by 3 great crested newts, a highly protected and endangered species. In the evening I went torching, searching for these newts with our lecturer and found another 10 newts! Despite being surrounded by monoculture, Harper has quite a range of wildlife including this endangered species! A great asset for learning which is utilised by Harper.
