The weather today was awful, with the Port of Dover closed and numerous accidents due to over-turned vehicles being reported. It was therefore with some caution that I proceeded to the bay to see if there were any birds close enough to photograph.
There were very few birds close in and the winds were exceptional, up to 70 mph being recorded. So I was amazed to see this guy speeding across the waves on a wind surfer.
When he disappeared for a few seconds, under the waves, I knew he'd be OK, he had the look of and experienced surfer.
He was quickly upright and going again. I don't know who he was but he put on a good show and deserved a bigger audience than my and a man and his dog.
This evening as the light faded the sea had calmed and a distant ferry indicated that the port was open again, but if your sailing take a bag with you!
