This beautiful footage is of a white tailed eagle is from over the Orkney islands.
It made me think.
- How many coastal features can you see?
- Are the features mainly caused by erosion or deposition?
- You can see a wave cut platform quite a few times in the clip. What used to be on top of the present day wave cut platform and how was it formed?
- A block of the coast seems to have partly, or maybe even wholly, separated from the rest (look at the clip between 00:10 to 00:20 and again between 02:10 and 02:55. How has this happened? what coastal processes do you think caused this block to come away from the mainland and what evidence in the clip could you use to back up your theory? can you see evidence for in the clip?
