Launch of Egglet No.1


‘Egglet No1’ was launched yesterday after some delay due to adverse weather (south westerly winds which would have quickly returned it to its  point of departure).  An easterly wind and a neap tide carried it to a marsh island around sixty metres distant, where it will stay until spring tides around full moon allow it to venture further.  It carries the shell of a five year old common whelk as well as the egg cases of the same species, previously gathered from this  location.
