Investigating the pond area
To collect further evidence for our longitudinal study, we went back into the pond area and were looking at plants living there. This was a great opportunity to apply our skills learned on the Ufton park trip. We estimated the age of the trees, estimated their height and identified which type of tree each one was. We found some Silver Birch, Hazel and Blackthorn trees. This all provided more evidence of wildlife in the pond area. We discussed that not only are the plants living things themselves, they probably provide habitats and food for the insects and animals, hence part of the food chain.
