Ooerr - Portuguese men o war - not very pleasant - seems that Wales & Sussex coasts are most affected but well worth the heads up, VOS.

Hi all. I did look at the beach on Monday when it was a little windy there was about 20 of those Portuguese lying around and silly parents was letting the children mess around with them. I went back yesterday ( Tuesday ) for a scan but only 1 left on the beach. The sea was flat so quick it was down to normal from Monday, I did have some interesting finds picked up a few coins on the surface including a 1915 1 p and some modern, in places it was down to rock and black sand but no rings turned up.The beach is full of iron so only the very hardy tackle it. I still have some finds to clean for id but slowly ::g

If I see the odd jellyfish I scoop it up with the spade and plonk it back in.

Walking the dog? Can't that mean two different things? Which one was it? :D
Good luck hunting.
