Dredger

Dredger
Taken on Eastbourne beach, I was told that shingle was dredged up from around the Isle of Wight and then brought over and "shot" onto the beach here. Quite impressive!

Polyrus, Judith Jannetta, Ian Kirk, Peter Gancarčik have particularly liked this photo

You'd not want to be sunbathing on the beach when that turned up ! Quickly buried and no messing. :)

I do like the feeling of drama and movement......(and in a year or two it will presumably all have moved back to the IoW and they'll be doing it all over again

Thanks very much everyone! Funny thing was, I seemed to be the only one paying much attention to it! Obviously the locals are used to seeing this sort of thing :)
