A good day for a walk

I hope those that braved the walk out around Point Symthe area had a great day. One of the highlights was seeing a pair of hooded plovers possibly at a new nesting site and some oyster catchers resting on the beach.

The experiments with trying to directly observe sand drift, where not totally conclusive (steve may have photos) but overall seemed to show more movement to the north west than south east. This corresponds with the direction obtained by reading the sand bars, which where attached to the beach at the south eastern end.
