3207BeachPatrol assembled on the Sandridge beach for their monthly clean.  The beaches looked quite clean at first glance.  However with 30 volunteers turning out,  we soon found that the rubbish was not on the sand but at the waters edge or in the grasses and trees above the sand.  At the waters edge was a lot of plastic film floating in shallow water or caught in seaweed there.  What a terrible product this plastic film is for wildlife.  Above the sands there was more plastic film and fragments along with the discarded plastic and aluminium bottles and cans, caught in the grasses and tree branches.
