Over Easter 2023 Charmouth Beach was again inundated with plastic nurdles. Dana Assinder reported:
"…there are nurdles floating on the lowish tide line in the river and as you reach the river mouth they are caught up in the wrack and in small drifts extending along the beach. Inevitably they are being trodden in to the sand.
It’s impossible to know where they came from, or if there are more to come, but they are clearly a fresh spill; grey white and black, clean and not seaworn or ridged, so I’m confident they are not biobeads / sewage related.
The photo of the bowl is to show how many nurdles are in the surface layer of sand I scooped from an area about 20cm square just beyond the river mouth."
