Cornish Sardines galore at sunrise in Newlyn.

Thankfully for the netting fleet, the falling tide has coincided with a drop in the wind which saw them firing up their main engines before sun up, all hands keen to get away to the fishing grounds off the South Western Approaches.....


the new secure fuel oil and stores compound provides different early morning view of Newlyn, with the light from the waning moon hanging over the town...


as the first three of six sardine boats queue up to land having made a dash in the early hours to take advantage of the weather that settled overnight...


Tom Pascoe, one of the youngest fishermen in the port, pushes down his brail while the next is being emptied ashore from Serene Dawn...


away in the distance the Harvest Reaper heads for the gaps...


as the Golden Harvest lays-to, waiting for a berth alongside the busy fish market quay...


down on the deck of the Asthore...


two brails are also in action putting their morning's wrk ashore...


Dan puts the Golden Harvest gently alongside the market...


as his newest recruit to the crew begins the landing process by adding ice to the 450kg insulated tubs...


before she swings the landing crane with a full brail of sardines over the waiting tub...


Abby represents a small but growing trend of female fishers in the port...


though with nine years already spent at sea crewing for big yachts she already 'knows the ropes' in a way that many new recruits don't...


as the sun permeates light in the harbour...


the next boat, Amanda of Ladram takes ice...


while a Stevenson boxes are delivered ready to be put aboard the next beam trawler...


within a couple of hours the harbour is beginning to empty of boats kept in port for poor weather...


the new security compounds now almost full...


as the last few insulated tubs are being filled full of sardines...


Silver Dawn  skipper Tristan takes the stern line...


so that he can slip the boat out of tier...


and take ice...


as the next sardine boat to land, Lyonesse comes alongside the quay...


the waiting Ocean Fish lorry now almost fully laden with the night's catch of sardines...


with just the first haul for some weeks from the Resolute being landed and caught on film by what looks like cameraman Nathan Harrison...


time for the crew on the Golden Harvest  to head back to her berth...


as the local angling boat Mermaid makes ready for another day at sea to take advantage of what seems like an extended post-lockdown tourist season being enjoyed by businesses in the far west of Cornwall.
