Flamborough Beach Clean

I went to a beach clean at Flamborough Head this afternoon, organised by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s Living Seas Centre. It’s the first clean up there since the tidal surge in December. We started off by recording every item found on the first 100 metres of beach, for the ongoing Marine Conservation Society Beachwatch survey, then just collected up the debris on the remainder of the beach.

We found the usual assortment of rubbish – plastic bottles and bags, pieces of polystyrene, fishing line, lengths of rope and bits of lobster pot. Twenty people collected 23 bags of rubbish, plus a pile of larger items. We also found two catshark egg cases, clusters of whelk eggs, a guillemot skull and fossils in the rocks.
