Report by Chris Cole

Bracklesham, 13th January 2010. (Low Tide 1.2m at 1602 hrs , Sunset 1623 hrs)

The barometer was steady at 1000 mb. There was a light North Easterly wind and the temperature was about 1c. The sky was overcast and the light was average.

This was my first visit to Bracklesham in 2010. There has been little change since my last visit on 31st December. The beach from the car park and eastwards was littered with light debris but mainly dragged down from the top of the beach. This area of the beach is "humped" at the moment and the sand is quite soft. I found about 20 sharks teeth and a nice rostral peg (Pristis). (See picture attached.) All these fossils were found in front of the Car Park and around the end of the first long groyne towards the east.

I did not assess any other parts of the beach on this occasion.
