Weather, wildlife and the seasons

The AONB ranges from wild and rugged coast to rolling farmland. It is an exciting and varied landscape with an incredible range of habitats. Animals make their homes in salt marshes, reed beds and eelgrass, hedge banks, oak woodlands and coastal grasslands. Time, waves and weather have created some amazing geology from sea arches, wave-cut platforms, crags and cliffs to dunes, shingle ridges and mudflats.

Do you have a weather or wildlife story of your own?

There's plenty of space in this scrapbook and we'd love to hear from you: Take part
