    The stories of an over abundance of rats have so far kept me away. I’d love the know if these tales were false.

    In the 1960s/70s it used to be covered in strange cabbagy/sprouty plants that I've never seen anywhere else. Not many birds. Didn't see any rats, but they may have been hiding. Rats would explain the lack of birds.

    It has been hit during a race as another forumite might remember. No names no packdrill for the skipper.

    It is too small to be likely to hold a resident population of rats and smells of guano but has had an overnight stay. Many of the sands round there are quick on a rising tide so exploring it not without challenge.

    The RNLI pulled someone off Denny shoal on Saturday evening. The BBC have details. Maybe someone from here trying to visit?

    Portishead I believe, no forms of communication or propulsion IIRC which makes me think it may be a dinghy?
