Ross Back Sands beach clean

An update from Reserve and Coast Care volunteer Andy Pigg on last Thursday's beach clean of Ross Back Sands: 

Firstly the weather conditions along the Sands of driving wind and rain, swirling sand and temperatures in the low single figures, made for quite a challenging experience. 

Undeterred a group of eleven stoic volunteers ventured out along the coastline determined to complete the task in hand. 

Our only observers: a few curious Grey Seals following us along the coast. What must they have been thinking? 

Four hours later and still smiling we had managed to dig out and recover seven lobster pots, a good haul of rope and rags, a discarded 20 litre container and an old boot along with approximately five Ikea bags of rubbish.

Many thanks to all who ventured out into the wind and rain to help care for the Reserve. You have our (Grey) Seal of Approval!
