    On the tide line at Pwhelli beach today went on for miles.
    Sad but that's natures way sometimes.

    Difficult to make out what it is... stranded sardines maybe?

    I'd guess sand eels. ..and possibly more than nature at work to cause that...
    Don't think I've every seen sand eels washed up in those numbers... shame whatever caused it...

    White bait or Fry as they are sometimes referred to..

    Happens a couple of times a year in the South/West...

    Normally a massive shoal of mackerel not far off shore...

    But what ever bait you use to try and catch them (The Mackerel).... you won`t not while the fry are around in such vast numbers..

    As it happens, it has been one of the best years in a long time to catch Mackerel of The Chesil Bank/Beach...

    Mind of useless information I am... :giggler:

    I knew I'd seen SOMETHING about something similar on Spotlight a while back, couldn't remember what though. They showed the fry right up by a harbour wall & slipway, then the mackerel following (didn't remember about that bit till I read your post)
