Another all out effort to protect us!!

More damage to the groyne overnight....some of the supports now exposed.

Bags being filled with shingle to form a base at the foot of the in danger of toppling.

Some of the bags in position

Time for a quick cuppa!

Harry...revitalised after his cuppa!

Placing more shingle bags against the groyne

...and another one.

Bulldozer at work more and more shingle is brought in.
The shelf in front of the revetment makes slow progress but how deep is it?

time for a spot of fishing?

no....actually establishing the depth of the deep channel which is causing problems.
...and late afternoon .....back filling the groyne.
The tides are dropping now so hopefully work can progress more quickly to afford some protection before the next 'springs'.

Apologies yet again to the regular birders....150 Mediterranean Gulls in the 'old' harbour entrance this morning
