The photo below is the most recent image from the Hurst Spit camera, taken on 26 Apr 2017 08:48

The camera is pointing west towards Milford beach.

The camera is totally exposed to the prevailing wind and rain from the western end of the Solent which at times has been over 100mph. This can cause the camera to vibrate which will produce a fuzzy image.
