We're going through a period of fairly mucky weather at the moment. While August can be a great month - we had a week of brilliant sunshine the first August we ever came up here - it's more likely to be dismal while the southeast of the UK gets the sun. Today we have light winds and murk, but the last few days have seen some strong breezes. Whenever this happens, the trawlers which fish in more exposed waters in fine weather come in to the Sound and spend the day steaming gently up and down.
One way of identifying passing ships, even in mist, is to take a picture and enlarge it later. Even at some distance, this trawler's registration, TT57, is clearly visible, and it's possible to identify her as the Tarbert trawler Maryeared.
Yr.No is promising us a sunny day tomorrow.
