    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    I think I will take my old, polluting, diesel transit camper out this weekend and weaken the ozone layer a bit more. Why not, everyone else is doing it.

    Rant over, where's my beer.
    At least the flashing lights are only on half the time .....

    Bloody Christmas lights!

    Just got our 20+ year old artificial tree out of the loft and for the first time ever the lights weren't working. Of course, it was the last bloody bulb I checked!

    Well if you carried on checking the rest of the bulbs when they are working we may think that you are a little daft.

    A VERY sad day for us today at Winterton beach. We lost two young healthy pups due to human intervention. The first pup (pictured) was literally surrounded by people in the dunes and the mum couldn’t get back it to, so abandoned it where it later died.

    The second was a mum and healthy pup near the slope at the cafe. Two young children were allowed by their mother to chase the young unweaned, non waterproof pup into the water where it drowned.

    THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!

    Please keep your distance.

    Please listen to the wardens.

    The site is assessed every day and if the wardens ask you to walk on the high dunes this is for your safety and the safety and protection of the seals.

    Sad. We come across this kind of behaviour a lot. I love working with the Wildlife Trust but the disconnection from the natural world demonstrated by some many people is depressing.

    We had another one last year where a stupid woman let her dog harass a baby seal into the sea and another person videoed it and put it on FB, but did nothing to help. It's so depressing.

    Its a real shame that the whole area cannot be shut to members of the public during pupping season. A few decent prosecutions might help to concentrate some stupid minds. Imagine the outcry if a human chased the two children into the sea...........
