About an hour in and only a few coins and a couple of fishing weights to show for my efforts I assumed there had been a large quantity of sand dumped on the beach by the storm rather than taken off it, so undeterred I headed for the next beach about 20 minutes away. This time it looked more promising as quite a lot of the wooded groins were showing compared to how they normally look, and about an hour later my coin tally had doubled.
After three hours I was feeling a bit cold and the tide was coming in fast so I decided to call it a day.
My total for the morning was £9.81 in modern coins, 19 fishing weights, a small brass cartridge, part of a lead toy soldier and the normal scrap.
I hope to get down to the beaches again soon, but by chance about a week ago I was given two separate permissions from close friends which have not been detected before, so I may try those first. Either way I’m hooked again!

Got a few of them myself but not recently. Mean lot around here. Far less coins then weights
They get a bit boring after while, a bit like finding iron in the field
NIce bit of gold next time
