First samples from North of Celtic Deep

We arrived on station at 02:10 this morning and began our sampling, running multibeams while transiting between stations as we had done on the North St George's Channel. The night shift predominantly sampled coarse sediment sites. Amy took a great photo of this mud shrimp (Upogebia deltaura), which she found whilst sieving.
