IMG_6779There seems to be more tern’s fishwifing each time I visit, I could see, from the main beach, 30+ birds gathered on Porth y Cwch, thought they were waders but now wondering if they are terns. Unfortunately found another dead one today, it was ringed and tangled in fishing line, don’t know if this caused it to die or coincidently got caught up in it after.

Some amazing objects brought in – the head of a yard brush, cuttlefish(lots of casting to be done) and crab shells – edible and spider – also this beautiful set of spider crab claws with a porcelain white barnacle. Also painterly surface of orange marker buoy, it’s layers of green algae had been scuffed away.

 

 

I’ve created a brooch form a section of pipe and rope I found. There’s a pleasing contrast between the still braided rope on one side and the a-fray on the other. It epitomised todays visit, it looks like it’s still being blown sideways.
