    Something interesting

    During registration you are ( for some reason ) required to 'select a flag'
    Although there is a Welsh option in the substantial countries list, there is no England and no UK !

    Apparently we are not UK...we are Great Britain...and it is there when you register.
    If you are ever at Lyndon Top I can probably find a field to wander over.

    Spoke to a fellow brit at Carolina beach yesterday , he informed me that the authorities have changed tac.You now need a permit to beachcomb,& if found without one it's a large fine + confiscation of equipment. Is this the case ? If soI've been detecting with complete ignorance. :cycle:.

    Equipment confiscation is somewhat fraught and has been termed by the EuroCourt as unnecessarily harsh punishment...
    BUT !
    As we know each area / town in Spain is in many ways autonomous and do more or less what they feel like...
    Having said that, it is only a simple form you fill out, and the 'licence fee' cost is not exactly onerous:)
