Where I live.

This was the then mysterious beginning of the process (November 2008):

And here today is the end result:

Can anyone tell me why the wind turbines look much bigger when viewed from the bottom of a road leading to the sea front than when viewed from the sea front itself?

It is suggested elsewhere that the contraption in the top photo was 'laying eggs'. Tripods?

This exact area of the North Sea was occupied in the Nineteen Sixties by the Pirate Ship Radio Stations - Radio Caroline, Radio London (Big L) & Radio England / Britain Radio - to which I listened regularly at that time.

At night, a young Johnny Walker often invited cars to flash their headlights from the shore out towards the ship at sea where he was playing records - and he created a code for conversation that way with courting couples! Radio Caroline had a famous 'Dong Dong' station signal.

With this wind farm we have a different Dong! (Dong being the Company running the Wind Farm).

Hi. Could you please tell me how many wind turbines they have installed at this stage? I know that when completed there will be 48 turbines.
