Well today I was on the other side of the North York Moors out at the coast at Sandsend near Whitby. The drive over there is fantastic. There are lots of lovely moorlands and some amazing valleys as well.

Just on the way over I saw so much. There were Lapwings displaying, Pheasants pheeding and Grouse gliding across our path. You have to drive carefully too as there are sheep loose all over the moors, they are there all year so they must be very tough.

- Sea anemone.
- Several different types of seaweed (see the picture)
It's not much but we were happy with what we found because we weren't there very long before the tide came in. I will return to some of these species in more detail for future posts as they are fascinating!
I also saw quite a few gulls and other sea birds which I'll cover in other posts.
There aren't many links today but here's a couple about Whitby:
The whole coast here though is fantastic so check this out too :
Hope you enjoyed,
