The internet has revolutionised how we get information on many subjects and is increasing the first place you should look when finding out about potential sea fishing marks, tackle and gear shops, birding spots or just somewhere to stay.
Here are a few links that I have found useful while wondering around the ‘web’, whenever I find a new resource that I think is useful I’ll add it to this list (I know there are more but these are ones I have personally used / bought things from so I suppose you could consider them a ‘mini’ recommendation)
