Gathering Razor Clams on Colwyn Bay Beach

This video makes gathering Razor Clams on Colwyn Bay Beach look quite easy. However it’s not as easy as it looks. First you need a spring tide, well, the low tide that comes with a spring tide. You also have to get there before the light fades, as the spring tides (low) are around 18.00 hr in Colwyn Bay which coincides with sunset in the relevant months.
I usually make an annual excursion down to the low tide mark and I have not been successful for the last two years – 2013, and 2014. However this year there was an abundance of clams. Indeed by the end they were almost jumping out of the sand and into my bag!
