Observation details


Estuary Wye River Estuary
Site Wye River Mouth Condition
Observation ID #13353
Date and Time Sunday 6th October 2019 10:15am
Approved Approved


The erosion caused by the river cutting into the northern bank of the river adjacent to the Beachfront caravan park is noticeable. There is security tape across the bank edge to stop people using the bank.

 Stormwater pipe near the bottom of the steps to the beach ( opposite the shop) is exposed.

Question: Do we need an additional photo-point? This month we couldn't capture the river course from the bridge to the sea from the current photo site only.  I have attached some photos from the other end of the bridge - so the course of the river to the sea can be captured.

Carolyn took some great photos and these are attached too!

I am having trouble getting Anne's name to appear in the samplers ?? i enter it but it doesn't appear on the next page?
