To Malham and beyond...

I have finished my exams! Yay! Finally I am on holiday! Ohhhh wait, no I am not. I still have a field trip to go on, I still have a lot of work to do, ohhh F**K! So on Friday I am off to Malham some tiny little place in north Yorkshire eugghh! A few fellow students and I am off for a week to a National park in the Yorkshire dales, we are going to help out with reserve monitoring and will be doing our own projects in small groups.

My group is looking at and comparing different species of Warbler territory sizes and habitat preferences. We have to be up at dawn and dusk to collect the necessary data, dawn at this time of year is at 4.45 AM, yes, that's right, I have to be up and out in a forest at 4.45AM! I am so not looking forward to next week!

Here is a picture of a Warbler!
When I get back form this trip I will most likely be absolutely exhausted! The last Field trip I wen on with my university, consisted of us waking up at 7 in the morning and not being able to go to bed before 3, as we had so much work! I am hoping and praying that this will not be the same in Malham!

Wish me luck and sleep!
