Marine life that's rarely uncovered by the sea will be the focus of one of the biggest coastal events in Thanet next weekend.
Low Tide Day on Saturday 27th May will see the Thanet Coast Project, helped by young people from the Millennium Volunteers, hunt for marine life that likes to hide on the lower part of our shores, including velvet swimming crabs, starfish and dog whelks. As well as discovering the sights uncovered by the low tide, there will also be time to play some environmental games.
This national event is held annually on the lowest tide of May and this year will take place between 5.30 - 7.30 p.m.
Naomi Biggs, Thanet Coast Education Officer said: "Low Tide Day last year was the biggest event in our calendar, so I am really looking forward to it again. Hopefully with the tide being so low we will see some unusual species that don't come out of the water very often."
