A replacement time lapse camera being fixed this morning............
Looking at it later it appears it didn't get fixed!

...and an additional length of rope attached to the life ring which had to be used recently but fell short of requirements!

Life on the beach.

Another hot day in store, presumably!

...taken at 9.45  this morning.

Later in the day fishermen arrived on the spit  for a spot of night fishing....8.30 p.m. and the sun is still shining..........
Setting up the 'gear'.

A few recent pictures taken along the beach....

...taken on 20th June....we don't want too many of these in the harbour!  If seen please notify the RSPB information centre at Sidlesham.

The 'cliff' looking east.

Close up of the poor tree!

Low tide from the third groyne looking west

The main spit now joins up with the junior spit at low tide as it pushes ever eastwards.

Looking towards the revetment which will be reinforced as soon as the rocks arrive.

Another view looking west showing the the effect of the scour current on the beach.
All is not lost however  and parts of the beach still look good.

...and the Broom smells wonderful.

Wild sweet pea.
Unfortunately Ragwort is taking over the spit towards the old harbour entrance....once controlled but no longer.
