Tackling Erosion

With some of the severe storms of the last few years, there has been considerable erosion on the banking that runs beneath the first hole of Lundin Golf Course. The sleepers that protected the bank had fallen into disrepair and many washed away completely. However, I notice that work has now been started to remedy the situation.

 New sleepers are being erected to protect the banking.

Tiny Elvers

Noticed rapid movement in one of the rock pools as I walked along the beach at Lundin Links last weekend. Tiny snake-like creatures, about 3cm long, swimming first one way then back the other way. I wasn't sure what they were but having looked closely at the photos I took I think that they were elvers. (Click to enlarge)

A Stormy October Day

Such good weather over the last few months with sunshine, little rain and light winds that it seemed summer would never end but with October the first stormy days of Autumn have arrived.

The barriers that were supposed to stop access to the crumbling end of the pier have collapsed in the storm. Not that they were particularly effective as it was easy enough to get round the side, but I suppose they did act as an indicator to the perilous state of the pier.
Can only wonder at what further damage may be done over the winter if no repairs are made. Such a shame.

 The view from the pier today - dark storm clouds over Largo and a sea of foam.
