Coast Watchers

Welcome to Coast Watchers! Help to build a photographic record of how our beaches and shoreline changes over the seasons and over the years.

Join in with Fylde Coast Watchers

Your photos will join data from other sources like tide gauges, buoys, radar, weather stations, and others. Together we’ll build up the bigger picture of our beaches.

This is a new project. It’s a partnership between us here at The Rabbit Patch and the engineering team at Wyre Council. Lancaster University are also helping.
