Shingle Street 18

In my post of 13th January 2018 I described a ‘crater-like depression’ on the beach at Shingle Street.  I said, ‘There is a little standing water, probably left over from and original inlet connected to the sea – the bottom looks too high to receive water seeping through the wall at high tide.’  I was wrong.

Yesterday when I arrived about an hour after high tide the depression was fully covered with water.  I left at around low tide: the water had receded exposing mud enjoyed by feeding waders.  It is clearly connected to the sea through the porous gravel making it a tidal lagoon.
