Morecambe Bay, England
Tonight, I am reprising a visit to the Morecambe bay mudflats region.
Benefiting from a good sunset and benign weather conditions, I visited Morecambe Bay in N.W. England. This is the largest expanse of inter-tidal mudflats and sands in the United Kingdom, covering a total area of 310 km². Access was via the town of Bolton le Sands.
These sands have an incredible tidal reach of 10m or 33 feet. At time of my visit, the tide was well out thus allowing me to range widely over the sands. As will be evident from image below there are dangers here. In 2004, twenty-one Chinese cockle pickers were caught unawares by the incoming tide and drowned.
In course of my extended hike I encountered horse riders, dog walkers and some bird life.A superb recreational area when the weather conditions are right.
A great spot for photography!
