Cubbin's Green: Ponds and Sea

Ponds: There are three areas with ponds/standing water

Sea: at high tide the sea level comes up to the rocks protecting the cliff base. On 5 Dec 2013, a storm surge (11.1m recorded at Liverpool) came up to the top of these rocks and eroded the cliff as well as flushing out floam and plastic bottles.
I have seen a seal close inshore at high water on one occasion.

Work underway (July 2017) to repair the ramp.

Waves near high water at the bottom of the slip.
Wrecks driven ashore on 4 Oct 2009.

Beach: Below the large rocks protecting the cliff, there is a sandy strip which has lots of shells. Further off-shore from this, there is a flatter and more muddy area with scattered rocks. Be aware that this muddy area can be soft and sticky. At low tide a huge area (mostly muddy) is exposed.

Shells and other marine creatures cast ashore. See Liverpool Bay Guide.
  Shells found on the beach below Cubbins Green:
Pile of shells near the High Water Line
Otter Shell and Common Cockle
Baltic Tellin and Common Mussel

 

A different sort of water: the Wirral Way after snow
