About the event

One of a monthly series of two hour surveys for porpoises, dolphins and other marine life being carried out along the Somerset and North Somerset Coast throughout the year. Run in conjunction with Somerset Wildlife Trust's Somerset's Brilliant Coast Project and the SeaWatch Foundation. No previous knowledge or training is required as experts and ID guides will be available. Several separate SeaWatch training events are being held by SWT during the year. We will also encourage you to use the opportunity, whilst sitting in this beautiful spot, to do some poetry, creative writing or even some sketching (entirely optional!).
