East Mersea Mudflats
Looking across the Colne Estuary towards Colne Point. A few feet from here I found a WW2 relic in the shape of a spent shell case of a 1/2 inch calibre machine gun round. Most probably it was left over from a gun test of a U.S bomber heading for a raid over Europe. However it didn't look like it had been washed by 48,000 tides. Doubtless it had been buried and had recently surfaced again. I got very muddy boots getting to this point!
