Algal bloom

Satellite photo showing algae bloom around the coast of Ireland. Donegal isn't the worst but it explains some of the strange water colours we've been seeing and the muddy residue that the tide has dumped at both ends of the beach.

The calm seas for months past and recent warm weather are contributory factors. At least we don't have an uncapped BP oil well gushing anywhere close by.
