Even though the poor thing is dead, there is a certain mystique about that picture, nice shot Paul.Still we have people finding Mahogany on the Island beaches, only thing is it is not mahogany but plain old french straight grained Beech (Fagus sylvatica).... Lots and lots of Ash (fraxinus exellsior) Nobody has found any Ambergris yet that I have heard of.(no surprise there)Lots of dead sea birds smashed in the storm, oh yes and the bunker oil is about here and there, so watch it with the children and dogs.....Take care all.

If one were to bury the dolphin for a few years , it could be dug up and a decent skeleton could then go to an Isle of Wight attraction.Of course there are rules governing this, the Natural History Museum know all about them and would give good advice in that respect.I would not be surprised if more dead things and more timber wash up after all the storms recently.....
