Confusion as hundreds of fish wash up on Donegal shore

first_imgHundreds of small fish were found washed up on a beach in Downings beach on yesterday (Sat) morning.The fish were discovered at the County Donegal beach on Saturday and the cause is yet to be determined.A holidaymaker told BBC News NI she was shocked to find the fish during a morning walk. “The lifeguard said he thought the high tide had washed them onto the beach, but no one has ever seen anything like it before,” Amanda Meehan said.A storm overnight caused heavy rain and strong winds and waves, but that in itself is not unusual for Ireland’s north west coast.Ms Meehan, from Derry, regularly stays in a caravan in the area and said she’s walked along the beach every morning during her stay.“This morning, it was just really bizarre. There were thousands of fish spread right across the beach. “There were a few fish up near the sand dunes, which we thought was a bit strange anyway, but then, when we got onto the beach, we saw the rest of them.“The whole beach is covered and nobody really knows why this happened.”Confusion as hundreds of fish wash up on Donegal shore was last modified: September 1st, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

King, buddy: Kevin Pietersen hails Virat Kohli after India’s 500th ODI win

first_imgIndia’s nail-biting win in the Nagpur ODI saw the team notch up 500 victories in one-day international cricket on Tuesday as the hosts took a 2-0 lead in the five-match series against Australia.India became only the second team after Australia to register 500 ODI wins. Australia lead the list with 558 wins in the format.It has taken India 45 years to achieve the feat after playing its first game in the format against England at Leeds on July 13, 1974 in the Prudential Trophy. The nation has featured in 963 ODIs till date.India’s first ODI win had come under captain Srinivas Venkataraghavan against East Africa in the inaugural Cricket World Cup at Leeds on June 11 in 1975. And Virat Kohli is the latest captain under whose leadership the team reached the major landmark.Kohli himself led from the front in the second ODI as he smashed his 40th ODI hundred to help India post 250. The bowlers then stepped up and defended the total, dismissing Australia for 242 to win by 8 runs at the Vidarbha Cricket Association stadium.Kohli top-scored with 116 runs and became only the second cricketer after Sachin Tendulkar to score 40 centuries in the 50-over format.Take a bow #KingKohli #INDvAUS (@BCCI) March 5, 2019Former England captain Kevin Pietersen hailed Kohli on social media after the match. “KING buddy!” Pietersen replied on Kohli’s post on Instagram.Brilliant century from Virat , outstanding death over bowling from Bumrah and Vijay Shankar holding his nerves really well in the end.
