Ormerers nearly as rare as the delicacy they seek
Monday 11th February 2013, 4:00PM GMT.
A SMALL number of hardy people braved yesterday’s downpour in search of ormers.
A depleted contingent of dedicated shoregatherers headed to Guernsey’s coastline and returned with some reasonable catches for their efforts.
Despite their finds, some of those out yesterday reported a high number of smaller ormers and backed calls made earlier this year for a temporary ban to help maintain a healthy stock.
More people are expected out today and tomorrow to search for Guernsey’s popular delicacy on what will be the lowest tides of the season at 0.5m.
