Creek by the Avon
"The creek at Milburn Orchard is a wonderful example of salt marsh. This important habitat is formed on low coasts where the ground gets flooded by sea water. Cord Grass traps silt from the tide, which eventually raises the level of the marsh." LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) In the background is the Avon estuary. Seen from Aveton Gifford Footpath 9.
