LIVE STREAM - The Spit, South Walney
The streambox is located on a shingle beach at the Southernmost tip of S Walney Island, facing the Atlantic ocean across the bay from Barrow-in_Furness. The beach supports a distinctive flora including the rare Walney Geranium (G. sanguineum var. striatum). In Autumn, seals come to the beach to give birth. From mid April it is home to a large colony of gulls. Sandwich terns, eiders and other waterfowl and waders can be heard from the water and the beach. The box sits on a small concrete plinth above the tideline.
