Back to winter

The wind has swung round to the North, and it’s much colder today. We had a bracing walk along the East Beach, round the Cromwell Harbour, and back home. The waves, driven by the onshore wind, were very high. The beach was criss-crossed by tracks of the waders – Oystercatchers, Redshank, probably Sanderlings and others.

During the severe weather of a couple of weeks ago, the sea was very different. Because the wind was offshore, waves were quite small, but the whole sea surface was white, and flurries of spray were blowing all over the place – it looked really weird. Wind speed was Storm Force 10, gusting to Severe Storm Force 11 – just short of hurricane force.

Back in December, the weather was much kinder. The photo here was taken from Belhaven Beach.
