Breach

Where the sea wall breached half a mile west of Salthouse an inlet has developed. This allows the sea behind the shingle ridge at high tide. Old sea defenses presumably put in place many years ago to stabilise the shingle have been exposed. See the metal posts at the back of the photo below. Offshore a deposition of sediment is taking place; making a feeding place for waders and other birds alike. As we walked the area recently a Red throated Diver took advantage of the good feeding here close to shore.
