What the storms brought to Pwllgwaelod beach

After days of high winds and squally rain  (official weather warnings from the Met Office), I set off for the beach prepared to find plastic debris from the storm. Instead, I found the inevitable band of seaweed at the high-water mark but no foreign bodies on the sand: only a beautifully disintegrating lobster pot and a dead gannet.

About bookvolunteer

I'm passionate about books, about Oxfam and about making the world a better place. When I'm not filling the shelves in Oxfam Wilmslow, I might be found reading the books I've bought in the beautiful surroundings of North Pembrokeshire.

    Once, several years ago, the beach at Cwm-yr-Eglwys was littered with goose barnacles which I have never found again.
    Did I recommend the book Strands by Jean Sprackland? It’s all about what she finds on the beach over one year.

  2. Strands sounds wonderful. I shall add it to my Christmas list – although I don’t really want to wait that long.
