The directions below.

 From Tyrella Beach, car park, go west along the beach, past the coastguard house and across the next bay to the rocks. There's a big stream in the corner of the next beach after the rocks, and it was between the stream and the rocks, feeding on the high tide debris. There's a big blue bus in the field behind, so you shouldn't miss that. The grid ref is J458354.
