March weather and two visitors

We are suffering from a cold spell accompanied by high winds. We had some pretty impressive clouds last night.

We had two large visitors this afternoon. Firstly, Alert turned up. One thing has changed. Alert used to carry a good compliment of buoys at the stern but, nowadays, it seems a bit short of these. Firstly, I got a shot as they were closing the swing bridge.

It has a nice complement of aerials and radar units.

It also has a substantial crane at the stern. There is a speedboat dropped on the stern nowadays. It used to be “wall to wall” buoys there.

As Alert was coming it, a rather nice little yacht was leaving. I hadn’t seen this yacht before.

Later, HMRC Valiant arrived. We don’t normally  get two of these large visitors at the same time.
