A couple of sunny days with clear skies have coincided with the full moon making for clear, bright, moonlit nights. Here at Coleshed however, a full moon means something more exciting….. and a quick check of the tide tables reveals it: an extremely low low-tide.
Following some serious juggling of this week’s schedule a clear window was created to get to the beach just ahead of low tide: at 13.49 precisely.
Goodrington is a good place to find a whole range flora and fauna. There are always lots of large, but worn, cockle shells. We were on the look out for shells with spines intact. Piddocks are another favourite, and only ever found on rocks right down the lower shore.
Time is always pressing…. and the tide waits for no man… (as Canute himself found!). Here is a selection of today’s more photogenic finds, with notes attached:
All in all, an hour very well spent!
Next super spring tide already on the calendar.
