Exploring the Camel Estuary
The Camel Estuary is famous for its outstanding natural beauty. Its magnificent scenery varies from the wood-lined banks at its tidal limits to the open waters and exposed shores at its mouth, and changes dramatically with the state of tide and the seasons. This book explores the Camel Estuary, its diverse habitats, and the wealth of plants and animals they support. It introduces some of the people whose lives affect and are affected by the wildlife of the estuary.
