The Tern reserve on the broad expanse of shingle is clearly fenced off.

 

The single line of buildings at Shingle Street lie behind the beach, which is giving a lesson in succession!

The sea moves vast quantities of shingle around, forming distinct, but temporary, landforms. Here a deep depression is formed behind seaward beach-building. It fills with sea water, but as the photo on the right indicates, not up to the current tidal level.

The spit islands at the mouth of the River Alde are covered up at high water; only the breakers indicate the shallows. Behind this scene the lighthouse on Orford Ness and, to its left, the nuclear trigger test buildings also on Orford Ness.
