Between the Tides" ANDY
HORTON, founder member of the British Marine
Life Study Society, introduces the fascinating world revealed at low
tide, how to enjoy a visit to a rocky shore,
the biology and behaviour of some of the most interesting examples of the
British fauna, concentrating on what can be discovered between the tides
on the Sussex coast. Andy is a freelance writer and photographer with a
specialist interest of the seashore around the British Isles, writing regular
monthly articles for the "Aquarist & Pondkeeper" magazine until it
ceased in 2000. He was editor of Glaucus, Shorewatch,
now replaced by the Torpedo News Bulletin, as
well as consultant for seashore books.

the rain had stopped I cycled from Shoreham to Widewater
and Lancing and the return via the Toll
Bridge and Old Shoreham, there was absolutely
nothing newsworthy or even vaguely interesting to report.
slightest thing of interest was an elevated number of empty Common
on the strandline. About one every two seconds
could be found scattered amongst the seaweeds
on the shingle beach next to Widewater.

Adur at Old Shoreham
the second month and an adult Rabbit
in a hedgerow north of Old Shoreham was the first wild mammal I have recorded
this year. Two Little Grebes
fished in the River Adur
just north of the Flyover.
