Week 3: Surveys and Sunday Strolls

Time is flying here at Ambios! We have already completed week three of our training. This week we continued learning about bird and plant identification with Mike. Mike also taught us how to conduct bird and plant surveys by using quadrats. We are now able to identify birds such as blue tits, mallards, and buzzards.

Later in the week, we practiced gardening with Jack and planted onions and other vegetables. Jack also taught us the basics of fencing. We really enjoyed fencing as it was the first time that any of us had done it. We felt proud when we had finished the task!

On Sunday, we went on an impromptu walk along the marsh with Mike. Although we all fell in the mud, we had a great time!
