Apart from seeing the Desert Wheatear on Leasfoot Beach near Thurlestone last weekend I also came across the aftermath of the 2014 storms which hit the south coast of Devon.
The small road which runs down from the cliff top car park towards the golf course has been swept away
Looking back from the other direction you get a good impression of how much land the sea gouged out
From the top car park you look down onto South Milton Sands – the same storm removed a lot of the sand dunes and also took away the road at the far end of the beach where the buildings are.
Sea level rise and increased storminess resulting from climate change will make these kind of episodes more common in the future.
