The Almanac begins..

May 10, 2020 | Blog

Things you notice epic or ordinary can be logged into The Alamanac via the website Almanac page. This a long term project and can grow over a number of years like a diary. It will create a picture of the estuary and how it is changing. You can enter almanac notes from now in the present or from the past, unusual events or quite ordinary day to day. What do you notice, hear, smell? What do you observe while on or near the Exe estuary or coastline? How is it (was it) different on this day? Entries are coming in so we have started a ‘gallery’ page where you can see the first few observations.
