Special offer for Spring 2021: get four FSC fold-out guides for just £10. Four great guides with lots of different shells, seaweeds, birds and flowers to spot at the seaside.

FSC Seashells

The FSC Seashells guide features 40 common seashells found on the seashore in Britain and Ireland. Accompanying text describes how to identify each type of shell. Shells are a common sight at the seaside. Why not take this seashells guide outside with you when walking along the beach? Great places to hunt for seashells include the strandline, beaches close to river estuaries and bottom of the beach at low tide. Meanwhile a completely different set of seashells occur on a rocky shore.

FSC Sand dunes guide

From sea spurge to sheep’s fescue, from marram to mouse-ear hawkweed, the FSC Sand dunes guide features 43 species of plants found on sandy seashores.

FSC Rocky shore name trail

The FSC Rocky shore name trail features the most common limpets, mussels, periwinkles, topshells, starfish, crabs, shore fishes and other animals you are likely to see, as well as seaweeds, lichens and encrusting sponges. Simple yes/no questions guide you to the colour illustrations for each group. Text on the reverse side describes what to look for in each group.

FSC Summer coastal birds

The FSC Summer coastal birds guide features 28 of the birds you can see around the coastline of Britain and Ireland in the summer months. Illustrations show birds their adult summer (breeding) plumage. Accompanying text on the reverse side covers body size, months present, summer activity and key identification characters for each species.
