From Primrose Lane, we turn right onto Broad Lane, walking straight down to the crossroads, admiring the rounded, English Heritage house on the corner. Avoiding the floods we head towards the entrance to Northam Burrows and part of the SW Coastal Path. Gypsy is wild with excitement, anticipating a swim and scamper across the rocks. Making sure there are no sheep grazing, we turn right again, towards the mudflats, sea grass meadows and the hauntingly beautiful rotting wood structures at Skern. These mudflats are a haven for wildlife, the constantly changing conditions of the estuary mean that relatively few specially adapted animals, plants and seaweeds can live here – but don’t be fooled. Encourage the children to take a close look, they will find a hidden community of living things, shellfish and worms buried below the soft mud, the scavenger crab and all manner of minute estuary life hidden under the rocks and pebbles. If you are lucky, you may even see a Curlew, searching at low tide for its dinner. A word of warning, mudflats can be dangerous, always follow the seashore code.
