the storms continue

Porthcawl – 5 Jan 2018:


Straight on the back of the new year storm Eleanor, the high winds continued to make for some dramatic sea at Porthcawl during high tide.

Porthcawl in South Wales is renowned for it`s regularly stormy conditions and dangerous seas, and this morning`s high tide was just after sunrise. However, the looming squally rain conditions hampered decent light, but this photo (from the sheltered side of the harbour wall) still shows waves crashing higher than the lighthouse.

While I was there I took some video as well as a series of images of the waves breaking against the main seafront.

With Porthcawl behind me, I headed for Kenfig NNR for a couple of hours to try and catch the Bittern that is over-wintering there, but no luck today.


More news soon.
