Beach huts are a place from where the rich and famous used to enjoy their visits to the beach. To soak up the sun on a hot and sunny summer’s day is something that many of us long for on cold, wet and dreary winters’ day, such as today, as I write this post.
It’s important for our health and wellbeing that we are able to get out and enjoy the great outdoors, but with an ever increasing population, and less space for us to exercise and relax, it is inevitable that conflicts between people and wildlife will occur.
The south coast of Hampshire and the whole of the Isle of Wight is bordered by the sea, and the shingle and sand habitat that makes up the beach is nationally a rare habitat in its own right, and one of international conservation importance. It is a qualifying feature of the Solent Maritime Special Area of Conservation.
