What to look for in May in West Bay.

Published by Editor on

Traditionally on the 1st May people celebrated the transition from Spring to Summer. It is the time of the year when more flowers start to blossom.
When you are out on your daily walks under lock-down lookout for the new flowers emerging. This is some of the wildlife and flowers that are usually found around West Bay this month. Not all of the flowers are coastal plants so you should be able to find them inland too.
