Work continues on the rock revetment and a further barge load of rocks arrived on this mornings high tide.

 Later, the rocks were taken truck by truck to the groyne whereupon two JCBs carefully manoeuvred   the rock piece by piece into position.

 The mother ship Rekefjord and the barge Charlie Rock and the tug have now departed. 
A further consignment of rocks from Cornwall are due later next week.
