Mount Edgcumbe Exploration

September 15th, 2011

In preparation for Bioblitz on Friday the 30th September and Saturday 1st October a small team from the Blue Sound Action Group went to see what we could find at Mount Edgcumbe. The plan for the Bioblitz is to try and find as many living plants and animals on land and sea. Last year we found 1000 and this year we want to try and find more! Last night we found lots of shells of flat perwinkles, limpets and topshells in the strandline. We collected a lot of rubbish from the shore but no matter how hard we looked couldn’t find any ray egg cases or chestnuts that were big enough to roast on the fire! Let’s hope we have more luck for Bioblitz!

Last day as a Beach Ranger!

September 1st, 2011

Hi everyone,

Today was unfortunately the last day of the Beach Ranger activity days on the seashore. Rayna, Laura and Frank have had a wonderful 6 weeks on the beach and hope you have all enjoyed it as much as we did! The best things we saw were: a giant slippery eel as long as Frank’s arm, scale worms, children smiling and tompot blennies!

Some of the highlights included making a million gazillion kites on the last and busiest day, lots of fantastic beach sculptures (for which the winner will be announced next week) and having so many families return for more beach ranger fun, including one group who came to 8 days in a row! You know who you are….

Thanks for a lovely summer, despite the rain! Hope everyone has fun at school, haha!

FLR, The Beach Ranger Team! :)
