The British registered Cape Osprey is typical of the large bulk carriers we see in the Bristol Channel from our lookout.  She is 280 m long and 45 m wide with a deadweight of over 161,000 tonnes.  The main cargoes are iron ore or coal for the steelworks at Port Talbot.  These photographs show her at the discharging berth at Port Talbot Deep Water Harbour.  More details including her current location and photos can be found here.
