More shingle moving.

Although we are in a period of neap tides the landscape/seascape changes with every tide....the spit grows evermore and the off-shore spits too, are changing the outflow from the harbour. Each day we see a difference.
In late afternoon sunshine.  
Work continues moving shingle to the eastern side of the groyne to prevent further short term erosion until the rocks from the ends of the existing rock groynes are used to assist this process....later this week.
Shingle collection ...
... for the vulnerable beach - a short term measure. 
Unusually high numbers of Gulls have been feeding off the spit at high tide and it seems there has been a veritable feast of  marine fodder for them.....starfish, molluscs and many of these sea urchins.

Some of the hundreds of sea urchins being beached.
