Minehead is associated with buckets and spades, beach games and strolling along the promenade. The bay is also a very diverse natural environment however. Lots of marine species can be found in rock pools, amongst the shingle and in the mud. Many seabirds also visit and there are wild plant communities along the top of the beach and on the coast path.
Recording what lives along the brilliant Somerset Coast is very important and will help us protect it in the future. During the BioBlitz we will identify as many species as possible over a 6 hour period. We will be assisted by expert naturalists. Everyone is welcome with no previous knowledge expected.
