River mouth update 20 July 2019

We’ve had a bit of rain and some high tides lately. The other day the river was very full, but it hasn’t had a lot of power. We need the right conditions to give it a full-flood flow so it can flush out sediment.

The work on the groynes seems to have improved how the river flows into the sea though. It flows past the groyne that was built up and then turns south, but only slightly. It’s currently flowing reasonably directly to the sea, well away from the land.
