GALE FORCE 9 !!


What a blow....the diggers had a day off today but even yesterday they gave up during the day due to high winds and lashing rain. On looking this morning at the work they had done on the beach so far I guess almost 20% of the shingle had been washed back into the sea by the last 2 big high tides!
As far as the birds were concerned they were keeping their heads down as they tried to balance in the ferocious gusts. Maybe something of interest may turn up when it is possible to stand up again outside but at present it is well nigh impossible to hold the bins steady!!

Oh dear, sounds as though you have a real problem with erosion there at Pagham. Hopefully the breakwaters will be stopping some of the longshore drift?
