Total haul metal detecting on the beach this morning: 12 cents, one spark plug and 3 bottle caps.
The looks on people's faces when they saw me waving my coil in the air and screaming at seagulls like a banshee: priceless.

I hope the baby turtle made it to sea with your help, lol! I've seen the females lay the eggs, but have yet to see a hatchling! Maybe cuz I'm out west during their peak hatch season....when's the earliest they hatch, do you know?

It was a whole nest-full hatching out.  And since they were hatching in the daytime, there was a whole flock of seagulls picking them off as they came out of the sand.  Feathered rats!  Anyway, some other people helped after they realized I wasn't totally nuts, and most of them made it to the water.  I think the main hatching season is from June to September for the loggerheads (like that one).

      Last night after i finished work i went to the beach for a 9pm start . The tide was in and i would work it out all night if it was worth it or if i could stay awake .
      I did the dry tops for a few hours then looked down the lower beach but it has built up in many places . But i did find a Silver chain and on the pendent it say 925 375 DIA , its all a bit knotted up . So i presume thats Silver , 9k Gold and Diamond . I had a good session on coinage but not as good as it should be , the weather was a bit chilly and cool yesterday so i didn't expect much . Near the end of the search i found 2 cufflinks , not Silver .
      I finished at around 2.30am as i was knackered and my bed was calling . I walked a few miles so that was enough exercise for me . 
      In this search i found the Silver/Gold chain , a foreign coin and the chain , the cufflinks and £35.87p in coinage .
      Today i wont be out , i need sleep . Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

      Today i got to the beach at 5pm but because of the bloody football it was very busy with Lager louts and other people . I had to wait quite a while before searching . The beach was similar to yesterday but built up slightly more . I got there at high tide and that held me up too . I think it was near sunset before i got some serious detecting in and by 10.45pm i gave up because there were still too many people on the beach . I had £22.13p , a 1 Euro and another but small Silver ring .
      Thats my lot till Tuesday but no sure when on that day . 
      Whilst the weather is warm and there are crowds on the beach i will use the ET , it doesn't get the interference the Nox gets .

      Went out with my Father yesterday, for a couple of hours to a local beach.
      Both with our Equinox 800s.
      No gold, but bear in mind, this is a UK beach, so not exactly the Treasure coast in Florida...lol.
      I got a shed load of coins....all modern and a heart-stopping bracelet RAM PACKED full of diamonds.....but turned out to be fake! GRRR!!
      My Father, however, truly showed  me how it's done, by also getting lots of modern coins, but also 2 x .925 perfect condition Sterling silver rings!!
      It's safe to say that the Equinox 800s are definitely doing the job!
      See pics of his rings....
       
      Nice one.
      Matt

      For all the beachers.....I read somewhere ( don't remember where ), to periodically remove the coil cover and dump out the sand.... I did so on the 3rd and found a considerable amount....... After cleaning it out and reinstalling the cover, I took it out to a beach and seem to have gotten a better response on all coins and silver.....BUT I now wonder if there is a FIX to keep the sand from invading the miniscule space betwixt the coil and the coil cover......any viable ideas??????

      I'm about to do some detecting in English fresh water streams, I assume that the Beach modes are best suited for salt water, so I'm going to use my favorite Field 2 mode in all the default settings, any suggestions? I assume that what I could find is maybe some tiny gold nuggets, silver coins, and misc jewelry and artifacts that have yet to corrode away in the water.
