Ella Nore - Barricade at entrance to Snowhill Creek
Ella Nore - Barricade at entrance to Snowhill Creek
The low sun is obscured behind one of the wooden stakes forming a barricade on the shoreline on the eastern side of the mouth of Snowhill Creek. What the purpose of this barricade is or was, I don't know, unless, like a groyne it was intended to protect the bank here.

Ella Nore
Ella Nore is a sand and shingle bank to the west of the village of West Wittering. It projects into the southernmost end of the Chichester Channel as it enters Stockers Lake, itself part of Chichester Harbour.
It is a short spit of land enclosing saltings, marsh and mud. The eastern tip of it is a nature conservation area where entry is not permitted so as to protect the nesting area of the numerous species of birds that thrive in this habitat.
The area is rich in wildlife with the mud providing rich pickings for sea and marshland birds such as gulls, ducks, geese and waders such as curlews; all of which can be heard and seen in this unspoilt location.
