@Daz .
Tides are racing in and it's whipping the sea up this end of the estuary.

Porthcawl should have some big old waves crashing in.
Maybe around 15.30, not much before then as the tides on its way out, low tide will be at 11.10 this morning

Kirsten Pobjoy or one of the other hotties they employ to do that...??
No idea of their names....... I could just about see the planes as the organizers have had to push the aircraft further out to sea due to safety concerns

Lots of boats and crews converging on the Isle of Wight with racing starting tomorrow for Cowes Classics Week. However, the event kicked off today with some fifty classic cars converging in front of the Royal London Yacht Club for Cowes Classics Day.

Some fantastic cars, plus the open-topped bus from the IOW Bus Museum in Cowes.

And Tintantic 2, the tiny wriggly-tin rowing boat used by former Army Major Mick Stanley (Ex Royal Scots Dragoon Guards) to raise money for charity - currently the Moldova-based Kids on the Edge charity and Ukrainian refugees. (A couple of pix feature Tintanic 2, with Major Mick in a union flag suit!)

found this wee guy on a window upstairs. (South west Scotland) I'll let him out when it stops pissing down outside
Any idea what it is? Moth or butterfly? Species ? It's about an inch wide.
