Found #3

By SlowSong
More stuff from the Thames beach.

When the tide goes out you will see on the beach beside the Trafalgar pub at Greenwich masses of bones. They're found just on this section of the beach and only stretch for about 50 yards. I wonder if they're chucked out from the pub by the kitchen staff. I can't imagine another explanation. Anyway, here's a selection, and V4 some scavengers inspecting their finds. Smile

Hmmmmmm--- I had the notion ( ignorant no doubt) that what happened at Pubs was drinking---mainly beer--that is to say, never blood--- have I been wrong all these years?

So, the bones are left over--- and I so hope they are not BIRD Bones---frightening idea!

I think a spot more sleuthing needs doing here, Chris. I wonder if as many people come out of the Trafalgar as go in? Interesting shots though with lots of lovely textures.
