at the coast

An early morning visit to the coast. An empty beach,

just the plants for company.

This is Eastney beach near Portsmouth. It is a conservation area because of these plants, areas of vegetated shingle are rare and home to many rare species.

sea cabbage

sea radish

sea bindweed

yellow horned poppy.

.Over 100 different species of plants grow here which is amazing given the harsh environment. There is more information about the beach and plants here.
