Default Big Seas to the west of Ireland

Some particularly big seas to the west & northwest of Ireland today. The significant wave height exceeded 13m at K4 and K5. The biggest swells would have been around 20m, possibly more.

Nothing exciting in west Cornwall, just some near horizontal drizzle when leaving the The Dolphin after lunch. The sandbags which came in handy on yesterday mornings high tide, which was quite something https://www.ntslf.org/data/realtime?port=Newlyn are all left out for some reason.

There were 3 black swans sheltering in the harbour though, which has caused some interest here https://www.cbwps.org.uk/cbwpsword/sightings/

I didn't know that we got black swans in our islands but I'm no expert
in such matters.

Black swans are native to Australian.

According to Wikipedia
"A small population of black swans exists on the River Thames at Marlow, on the Brook running through the small town of Dawlish in Devon, near the River Itchen, Hampshire, and the River Tees near Stockton on Tees."

which all makes it a bit of a mystery where these are from, especially considering the recent wind conditions.

They've been in Penzance harbour a few days now, and are becoming something of an attraction.
