Steve is a very unassuming chap; full of humility. He was a guest on our recent trip to the Solway for the winter geese tour.
Now, I know that Steve would never describe himself as an expert … but he is. Every Sunday he dedicates himself to walking the beach at Snettisham, finding and then recording all the different species of Ray, Skate and Shark egg cases he can find. Take a look at the distribution maps on the Shark Trust website and you’ll see the cluster of records around Snettisham. http://www.sharktrust.org/en/GEH_distribution
On one of our morning walks on the Solway last weekend, along the beach in front of our hotel, he picked up several egg cases of Small spotted Catshark (Scyliorhinus canicula). He was delighted to find these as they are infrequently found around Norfolk’s coast. Citizen science at its very best.
