Many of you will be aware of the recent reports of Portugese-man-o’war specimens being found on beaches of the South West. Well, Bigbury-on-Sea is not immune! One dead specimen of the potentially dangerous jelly fish was found washed up on the beach during our very successful beach clean on Saturday . Although the specimen was dead, the tentacles could still deliver a very painful, potentially dangerous sting, of course, so extreme care was used in getting rid of it.
Meanwhile, thanks go out to all the volunteers who gave an hour to help clean our beach and to Amanda Keetley from lessplastic.co.uk and Surfers against sewage, who organised the event.
