The railway (Avocet line) runs beside the estuary, and the stream below the bridge is tidal; the tide was a couple of hours before high at the time of the picture
Avocet Line

The Avocet Line is the railway line in Devon connecting Exeter with Exmouth Link . It was originally built by the London and South Western Railway. The line follows the Exe Estuary for most of its route, giving views of the estuary. The line is named after the Pied Avocet, which live in the estuary. Opened in 1861.

River Exe

The River Exe rises on Exmoor and flows south to Exeter and The English Channel. Its estuary is a good example of a Ria (flooded river valley). It is tidal to Countess Wear, just south of Exeter SX9390 : Countess Weir, River Exe. More information LinkExternal link
