This was at Eastney Beach in Portsmouth, a beautiful area that I had only briefly visited before despite working for many years in Portsmouth. The group were welcoming and it was quickly clear that they had been successful in keeping the shore in good condition. At first, the general impression was of a tidy stretch of shoreline, but when you looked closer there were still plenty of plastic bits and pieces to pick up.

Special thanks to Southsea Beachwatch for making me feel welcome on the day and for all their hard work in clearing up the shore. Not only does the beach look pristine, but the removal of so much plastic debris helps wildlife. Please have a look at our vlog from the day. Apologies for some of the sound - it was a lovely day but the microphone managed to pick up quite a bit of the wind.
