Making the Most of the Coast has produced ‘A Beachcomber’s Guide for Solway Shells’.

 

After the great success of the Shell Guide, which “has been very popular with everyone from children to grand-parents”, as Nic Coombey puts it, the Wildflower Guide is incredibly useful for anyone who has ever wanted to know more about the hidden gems of our beaches, marshes and cliffs.

 

The guide features 16 common flowers found on the Solway from Common Glasswort on the mud flats to Thrift clinging to the cliffs. It includes stunning images and fascinating facts as well as easy-to-use key characteristics that help identification.

 

The guide can be downloaded here. Hard copies will soon be available at selected outlets across Dumfries and Galloway.
