to bring along any of your own for help with identification. You will also be able to buy signed copies of their book for only £14.99. www.wildnaturepress.com/our-titles/
Sunday 17th April, 1000—1200, £3 per person
Round off the weekend’s events with a walk back to Langdon Beach to examine the pitfall traps and any other items that washed in over the night’s high tide.
All events are family friendly, however the evening talk will be most suited to an audience with a keen interest in the sea.
