Trip to the upper reaches of the tidal Hamble at Botley on what was a huge tide. Mrs BB dropped me off at the old wharf for a paddle down river to Swanwick Hard and a short walk home.
The upper reaches are narrow and the banks are dense with vegetation and flora, I had seen this sign warning of dangerous local wildlife so it pays to keep an open eye.
But until now had not managed to spot them in the wild or get a close up photo.
The search continues for the notorious and fabled Hamble giant squid
