I had been working with the school at Midhurst the previous day studying the grounds as a wildlife habitat and recording the various invertebrates we could find. Today we would be doing the same set of activities on the vegetated shingle at Shoreham.

When we arrived an egret hunted along the edge of the incoming tide.
The children drew a plan of the beach habitat to compare with their school grounds habitat.
Then they investigated the shingle plants and their special adaptations
