Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Saturday, 17 February 2018

Sunny Saturday in Newlyn.


Saturday morning means the Mounts Bay gig crews are out practicing for this year's racing season...



heading out across the bay past the Trinity House service vessel, Patricia...


and the Asthore in the final stages of a seven ton haul of early morning Cornish sardines...


some of the netters are still in port waiting to take ice...


while others head back to port empty-handed...


three of the ports Stevenson beam trawl fleet at rest...


as the Mayflower heads back to port...


it's good to see the market refurb is forging ahead with one half of the roof replaced with a new surface that gulls don't like walking on...


but that message does not appear to have got through to the gulls it seems...


a promising look to the day...


as the resident Glaucous gull takes flight...


before finding another snack in the weed...


watched by one of the port's long-time resident turnstones...


the eerie world sous the fish market...


coated in weed.
