Where the Sid meets the sea

Often one of the most interesting parts of a river is where it meets the sea: 

The mouth of the Sid – The Sid

This photograph was taken a couple of weeks ago by Jan Metcalf of the Sid Valley Biodiversity Group:

It shows a large collection of flotsam at the mouth of the River Sid – which indicates the smaller but highest tide line up by the ‘wall’ under the cliff. 

It also looked as though this higher tide line continued to the north of the Ham pumping station building, which is quite a way “in land”. This is possibly because the river had broken through the shingle bar which usually stops this happening.
