Geography studies at Hengistbury Head

Leila Peacock L5 writes: In April, L5 set out on a geography field trip to Hengistbury Head to study coastal management and tourism.  We spent the first part of our trip battling the elements and describing our surroundings. It was so wet some even opted for a bin bag over their clothes. We stopped for lunch and the sun decided to come out whilst we were eating our picnic. We then found some visitors to interview using the tourism questionnaire that we had written. 
On continuing our trek we encountered a beautiful lake which is also the habitat of the rare Natterjack toad and we got a breath-taking view of Christchurch harbour. Despite the weather we managed to collect a lot of information to include in our project which we will be completing back at school.
