EVENTS

23 February 2015
"Life 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.

27 February 2015
As 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. 
   

Common Whelk shells
Hornwrack & Slipper Limpet

The slightest thing of interest was an elevated number of empty Common Whelk shells on the strandline. About one every two seconds could be found scattered amongst the seaweeds and Lignite on the shingle beach next to Widewater.

Into 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
