THE Exe Estuary Management Partnership has produced a new leaflet to provide information about the wildlife and ecology of the globally important Exe Estuary.

The new leaflet provides information on some of the key species that can be seen on the estuary as well as guidance as to the best seasons, and locations to spot them. It also has contact information for all of the key wildlife management organisations on the estuary, so you can find out more about particular species or sites.

Also available is the Exe Explorer 2009 - a free guide to exploring the Exe Estuary with information on where to walk and cycle, public transport and local facilities such as toilets, refreshments, parking, cycle hire and bus stops.

Exe Estuary Officer Jenny Lockett said: "The Exe Estuary is a fantastic place to explore with plenty of opportunity to combine a short walk with a ferry or train ride and a family picnic or lunch in a local pub.

"We have provided a few suggestions of circular walks that can be created, and hope that visitors will be able to use the Exe Explorer to try these as well as create their own by using the map provided within the leaflet."

Exe Wildlife and Exe Explorer 2009 leaflets join the Exe Activities - a guide to all of the recreational activities, such as water sports, that are available on the Exe Estuary.
