About the event

This walk is  jointly led by Dick Best (Steart Marshes WWT Volunteer and local ornithologist) and Mark Ward (SWT Brilliant Coast Project Manager and marine biologist). We will be looking out for wintering wild fowl and wader and then going down onto the seashore to search for some of their food sources - the marine animals and plants living in the inter-tidal zone.

We welcome donations on the day toward Somerset Wildlife's Trust work on the coast and across the county
