Boats gone over the edge....
|two gone...one to go!|
The all important breakwater/groyne partly tumbled into the sea
...and further erosion, now getting behind the revetment.
|It was good that Earlcoate was on hand to retrieve the boats|
|worried faces....worried people watch the high tide at 11.30 this morning.|
The biggest high tide of the week is tomorrow so we will hold tight, as the forecast is not good!
My New Years resolution was to maintain this blog for birds and bird sightings only but this erosion problem is causing such a lot of local interest that I feel I have to continue featuring it at present especially as I'm situated 'on the spot'. We had hoped our problem would have been resolved by now but alas this will be ongoing for some little while...I fear!
|..outgoing tide later in afternoon|
At present there is lot of Gull activity on the spit as during the past week of stormy weather, hundreds of starfish, anemones and sea urchins have been washed up creating a fantastic food supply.
