The strong winds and high tides which have been affecting the SW Coast of the UK have hit St Agnes and Gugh this week. The team have stayed safe and as the weather has improved they have been spending time adjusting some of the stations. None of the bait has been dislodged as it is all wired into the bait stations during this phase of the project. They have been also helping the community clear rocks and seaweed which has been blocking paths. Thanks to all the team for their hard work.
