Discoverer Dorset: Coast & Sea


Much of Dorset's coast is now a World Heritage Site. One of Britain's first underwater Marine Wildlife Reserves is at Kimmeridge. Add Dorset's rock pools and coastal waters, the unique shingle bank of Chesil Beach and the Fleet lagoon, Poole Harbour with its saltmarshes and islands, the limestone cliffs of Portland and Purbeck, the county's undercliffs, sand dunes and beaches, and you begin to understand the reasons for the extraordinary richness of the plants and animals that flourish along Dorset's coast and in its seas - a wildlife that ranges from dolphins to red squirrels, from a bright blue seaweed to the Lulworth skipper butterfly, and from guillemots to early spider orchids.

Part of an outstanding series of five books examining the main wildlife habitats found in Dorset. All written by leading local experts. Full colour photographs throughout. Each book is card backed, 8" x 5" & approximately 80 pages.
