Second year physical geography trip to Sywell reservoir, Northamptonshire

On Tuesday 3rd March the annual Physical Geography Practical (module ENV2123) field day to Sywell took place.  The purpose of the field day is to develop skills in surveying and sediment coring. The students managed to collect lots of useful data during the day and will be using this in the associated assignment.  The next field day in this module is to Eydon Brook later in the month.
