Oh dear :shock:

Rich pickings for the gulls, but concerning if it becomes more than a one off ... as seems likely.

the temperature they mentioned is only nearly 27°c so i'm not sure that 'cooking' is the right word. they may have overheated, dried out, suffocated or another number of worrying reasons - but cooking?

Yes I think “ cooked” is wrong - that’s not even as hot as an ordinary bath, let a hot tub. And I’m not cooked so far

But obviously worrying

I’ve been thinking about this ... it was presumably a combination of a ‘spring tide’ and and a hot day ... I’ve been on the Norfolk coast when a spring tide has revealed the edge of the chalk reef which is home to the famous Cromer crabs and many other crustaceans, small fish and marine plants. On sunny days the rock pools can become very warm indeed ... like a warm bath.
With the melting of the ice caps and sea levels rising, the areas currently at risk of overheating during this sort of combination will be in deeper water and not revealed by spring tides .... not saying that the article is wrong to raise concerns ... just pondering ‘out loud’ around the subject ....
