Bridgwater Bay Survey Work

Still lots of interest in the mud flat areas around Hinkley Point. !
I recently joined forces with my old mate Steve Yeandle who runs ‘Scooby Doo Too’ out of Watchet on a mega long survey (21hrs) around the Bridgwater mud flats, surveying the muddy flats for any forms of life and as expected not a lot of life was found in our 18 survey sites in and around Brendon Sellicks netted areas, much to our surprise was the amount of juvenile Lemon Sole that we found, this must be a nursery area?
The two University based technicians were extremely knowledgeable and gave us a great deal of information on the worms that form the coral type reefs in and around the bay.
Hopefully we will revisiting the area very soon to carry out some more survey work.

On a secondary note last weekend I bumped into the crew of the ‘Severn Link’ ferry in Dartmouth! They were on sea trials before moving around to Falmouth then onto Milford Haven. It good to see that Chris Marrows dream is now fast becoming a reality. Well done to Chris, we wish him all the best.
All for now
