    Final year field course returns to rugged Anglesey

    16 November 2023

    An annual Harper Adams field course has returned to Anglesey in North Wales.

    The field course – which includes final year students whose degrees cover Environment, Wildlife, and Zoology - is a residential event which involves students visiting various locations across the island, including field work at Newborough Warren thanks to the kind permission of Natural Resources Wales.

    In preparation for the event, the first five weeks of the Environment and Geography Field Course module sees students prepare a group project – before working on that project in the diverse range of habitats which Anglesey presents.

    Taking place in November means that the students (and staff) on the trip sometimes face adverse weather conditions – but the trip is a valued and much anticipated teaching tool, which directly leads on to a number of Honours Research Projects for the students.

    Here’s a roundup of the visit – with thanks to  Dr Andy Wilcox, Head of the Agriculture and Environment Department, Lecturer in Entomology Dr Ben Clunie, and more!
