Strumble Diary wind in the NNE not exactly a feast!... but not a famine!
As Strumble is north facing any wind from the north is not ideal. With the usually prevailing south westerly's its a lee shore meaning we get a quieter sea but in a northerly it kicks up. As such it makes it a lot harder to spot porp's in the messy sea that is made worse by the tidal flows. It was Laura and Rens day off and I took them to Bosherston Lilly Ponds but they were keen to have a look at Strumble to finish off their day. Northerly's are cold at this time of the year but a couple of porp sightings in the gnarly sea had us trying hard to get a shot.It was a bit of a nightmare but eventually I got a couple of record shots and a distant black throated diver for the record, so another positive day in the Strumble diary!
