    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Tina. They are gradually decommissioning the rigs in the North Sea and bringing them inshore for dismantling and recycling the materials. It is seen as a positive development for wildlife and the marine environment, so fingers crossed it will turn out to be a good sign of things to come 💙🐳🐬 xxx
