A few fotos I have taken over the last few months, all related to volunteer work with NCI as a watchkeeper.
We a coastal watch 364 days a year, 8 hours per day, split into 2x4hour watches, keeping a radio & visual lookout in the inshore waters, like the Coast Guard but unpaid. This only for sea safety, keeping an eye on, but not spying on everything from swimmers through to sailors, in boats large & small.
We try to identify & maintain a log, responding to calls for help from anybody for anybody. Locally, we are part of the Search & Rescue service maintained by the Coastguard Agency, Lifeboat, Cliff Rescue & Aircraft Rescue Helicoptor & Spotter Plane.
