About the Author
James Merryweather helped in the teaching of marine biology to University of York first year undergraduates for over thirty summer seasons before retiring and moving to the West Highlands of Scotland. From his new home he has regularly been exploring the fabulous Highland shores and sharing his enthusiasm with groups of local naturalists and young people. He has already produced two immense seashore guides, available on a packed DVD with other nature guides, FREE from janet.bromham(at)highland.gov.uk. When the Highland Council announced its three year seashore project James was, of course, among the first to step forward and get involved. No published field guide quite suited the project’s purposes and, anyway, the best were disappointingly out of print. It was the ideal opportunity to create a new one, based on occasional guides to awkward seashore creatures he had already compiled, many years’ experience of user-friendly identification key preparation and his vast library of biological photographs. James Merryweather is the author of the Field Studies Council's two popular field guides for identifying British ferns, several books on musical topics and what he considers to be his first 'proper book', self-published in 2013 through Amazon (also a Kindle e-book) and entitled 'REALITY is enough', a potential best-seller if ever there was one.

This was exactly what I ordered, as it was one of the few books I have found about the shores of the UK12 June 2014
I like this book very much as it gives precise descriptions of what can be found on the shore. It's quite a good size and easily fits in my bag when I'm out and about.

An excellent little guide - great for identifying things you might find on the seashore. I found the crab key especially helpful during my recent visit to Skye. The author is a real enthusiast, and keen for any feedback.
