Welcome to Meteowriter, a website on history, estuaries, wildlife and the weather, particularly for the Mersey Estuary and Cumbria.
I’m a scientist, writer and photographer with a book on the Mersey Estuary (link). Follow the links below if you’d like insights into these topics and tips on writing and photography.
The Mersey Estuary
The Mersey Estuary stretches from Warrington to Liverpool and the Wirral. Read about some of the outdoors art and bird’s eye views around the estuary, and its wildlife and tidal bore. Also, about the lost rivers of Liverpool and how land was reclaimed to build the city’s port. There is also a page listing useful websites and books about the estuary.

Weather and climate
There are many opportunities to see wildlife around the UK’s coasts and estuaries, including spectacular aerial waterbird displays called murmurations, along with seals and other marine life. See here also to read about sites in the Mersey Estuary and beyond, and here to read about the problem of invasive plant species.
