Dredging around the mouth of the Kelvin is being undertaken not only by WD MERSEY, seen arriving a few days previously, but also by the grab dredger ADMIRAL DAY from Fleetwood. During the summer of 2009, this little vessel had spent some considerable time dredging at Largs while the pier there was being rebuilt. This time, most of the material that she was dredging up was deposited back onto the river bed, later being lifted by WD MERSEY and brought downriver. On certain occasions, however, ADMIRAL DAY herself made the trip down river to the mouth of Loch Long to dump the spoil.
