Green marker post returns

Strong winds from WSW to west. Very heavy showers with some sunshine.

You know it's been a quiet day when the headline refers to a metal post! Still it's good to have the green marker back, out from Heysham Head.
It's fixed on the same old surface water drain,
so all old bearings will still be valid.
