Influences on tidal range
(NB: despite some sites claiming otherwise, the Severn Estuary actually has the third largest tidal range. The second is the Bay of Mont St Michel in Brittanny. The largest, and perhaps most impressive, is the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia)

The Harbour Seal
Why have they declined in New England?
Professor Stott explained that the likely reason for the decline in New England is the loss of open fields and meadows (which fireflies favour) to woodland.

Advice on how to prevent moths from eating your clothes:
Camphor deters moths, as does lavender oil, rosemary and cloves or thyme or even orange peel sprinkled over the clothes. Always clean clothes before storing them and re-treat them every six months. Discourage moths by having woollens cleaned before storing, wrap in plastic bags, add some cloves or dried orange peel and seal. Line clothes cupboards and drawers with sheets of white damp-proof paper which can be bought in most wallpaper shops. Moths thrive in damp conditions and this will keep clothes damp free. Remove moth larvae on your clothes by running them through the dryer on the highest heat. Further advice from Good Housekeeping
