Beach flotsam below Carregwastad Point
Beach flotsam below Carregwastad Point
I had seen a grey seal bottling in Aber Felin cove here and scanning the beach for other seals I spied what appears to be a large portion of dead pony. A grey pony seems to have fallen down the very steep gully above this beach and either been injured or trapped on the beach (though I can't believe that if this was the case that a rescue wasn't attempted) and subsequently died. Gulls were interested in the carcase and vulture-like hopped on and off, chased each other and generally set off a macabre scene.
