Seals in Pegwell Bay on Video.

A look at the male seal population in Pegwell Bay. The trip was lead by Horizon Sea Safari's of Ramsgate, and skipper John Brooks who talks about the seals here... October 2009

Ed, many thanks to Tom Betts of Your Thanet for this interesting video, it’s easy to forget the significance of the wildlife in Pegwell Bay when looking at local pollution issues.

I am reminding people that the main runway at Manston Airport still hasn’t got fuel interceptors on much of its hard standing and the main runway as far as I know.

What this means is that a major fuel spillage at the airport would probably end up in Pegwell Bay and kill the seals.

Comments, since I started writing this blog in 2007 the way the internet works has changed a lot, comments and dialogue here were once viable in an open and anonymous sense. Now if you comment here I will only allow the comment if it seems to make sense and be related to what the post is about. I link the majority of my posts to the main local Facebook groups and to my Facebook account, “Michael Child” I guess the main Ramsgate Facebook group is We Love Ramsgate. For the most part the comments and dialogue related to the posts here goes on there. As for the rest of it, well this blog handles images better than Facebook, which is why I don’t post directly to my Facebook account, although if I take a lot of photos I am so lazy that I paste them directly from my camera card to my bookshop website and put a link on this blog.
