Revetment preparation works

Pagham Beach Erosion Protection News

Work continued last night in the dark until 9.00p.m.
...view from window

...and commeced this morning at 7.00am.when it was apparent that progress was being made and, with the high Spring tides ebbing, the shingle is not disappearing as fast as during the past few nights!
7.15 this starts again

...and by noon work finished for the day.

By mid-day the curve of the beach where presumably the rocks will be placed was evident and the vehicles were stowed away until the action starts next week. It is understood that the granite rocks are still on schedule to be beached at high tide next Wednesday.

Bird news

Very little to report....walked the North Wall and apart from the usual Black Tailed Godwit,Wigeon, Teal and a flock of Canada Geese nothing of real interest.
