National Marine Week

25th July - 9th August 2015
Summer is simply not complete without a visit to the coast...
so why not head down to the shore and join us in celebrating UK marine life?
This year we're championing dolphins - did you know that several species of dolphin
can be spotted from our shores? Take a cliff-top walk, watch sea birds soar and
see what else you might spot as you soak up the sounds of the lapping seas. 
National Marine Week (25 July - 9 Aug) offers endless opportunities to day-trippers
and holiday-makers keen to discover dolphin delights, whilst savouring our shorelines.
The first rule of dolphin-watching is to be patient! 
It’s best on a calm day, keeping the sun behind you to avoid the glare from the sea. 
A disturbance of the water’s surface is often the first sign but look out for large flocks
of excited seabirds gathering overhead too; a sure sign there are plenty of fish about. 
If you're keen to learn more about our incredible Ocean Giants,
please visit our campaign page.

  1. Why not join LWT Coast & Wash Warden Dave Miller at the watch tower on Anderby Creek beach at 1000 hrs on Saturday and Sunday, 1 & 2 August for a Harbour porpoise and Dolphin spotting session ? RW
