Chosen because of un-nurtured Aspen Trees are sharing space with Stonechat, Devil's-bit Scabious, Limpets, cockles, sand eel and Channelled Wrack and my eventual 55 other identifiable organisms.
It is not an easy square because the sea covers half at high water, it is exposed to Northerlies and Westerlies, there is overhanging vegetation on the cliffs, a clutter of sea-boulders, many covered with Marine Algae or Lichens and also thigh-deep heathery moorland in the topmost sections.
Moreover, actually being certain that my square on the Map and Satellite image, corresponds to the real-life square has been no easy matter, a highly iterative process.
I am in no hurry to complete the project, preferring it to last a year and a day.
I may be adding pictures to each observation until the maximum of 14 is reached and then I will be re-ordering and replacing them until all are the best I can manage.
