Wildwood Trust and lead by Anne Riddell, a great knowledgeable and enthusiastic tutor.
We started off in the education centre at Wildwood where Anne talked about seashells, showed us slides and let us handle different shells.
We learnt how to identify the main groups of shells, lots of small differences.
We looked at the sort of habitats where shells live around Britain and then particularly in Thanet.
The real fun bit was going on to Kingsgate Bay with Anne and collecting shells from the beach.
Here Anne was a goldmine of information, telling us and other beach walkers about the shells and objects we were picking up on the beach.
It would be great to have Anne on hand for my beachcombing walks. I did though learn a lot more than I did and it will be good to use that in future.
