Sandbags for Christmas & New Year

Yesterday was spent back on the East Coast helping build a sand bag wall to deflect high tides that are coming in early January.

A lovely evening watching the sun go down with a shared meal, glass of wine and a lit up Christmas tree to begin the festive season with my Monday friend.

   Photos and more to follow.

Fingers crossed.

High tides are an issue for nesting birds and coastal sites favoured by rare birds are very vulnerable but they will keep trying to be successful. Here we see Fairy Tern mating just a few days after a failed nest due to high tides.

An enjoyable day watching the birds in great company.

Sand wall & Super moon

High tides are coming and nests look vulnerable so two long walls of sandbags are in place to protect the nests from a surge tide.
