The storm surge is here!

imageWe have reached the point in our tests where water is as deep and waves as high as can be expected during a storm surge on the North Sea coast! Nail-biting stuff, as we stand and watch the waves break over the marsh with such ferocity that a person would be swept off their feet in an instant…. What this has done to our marsh will be revealed when we let the water out  – so keep an eye out on our blog!

Meanwhile, more of the plants float to the surface – with us having to risk getting our feet wet while fishing them out so that our wave gauges continue to be fully operational.
