Earlier this week we arrived in Costa Rica to conduct the annual 2nd year undergraduate field course for the University of Manchester. It been a wonderful week and we have been based in Turrialba, high in the central mountain range. Here we awake at 6am to a myriad of incredible birds that live in this area. We have spend the daylight hours teaching the students about the array of wildlife and plants found here, surveying techniques, and developing their biological skills.
By night the students visit the Costa Rican Amphibian Research Centre to investigate creatures of the night with Brian Kubicki and I. The students we have are a great bunch, highly motived and enthusiastic about all we see. For all it feels like we have arrived in Paradise!
