Salt marsh

Karl writes:
'Intricate creeks at the salt marsh at Waulkmill Bay. Although they look like separate ponds, they are interconnected and fill and drain with each tide.

The biggest salt marshes in Orkney are in Sanday where they are usually known as 'sea pows'.'

I know this salt marsh very well - it leads to some of the best sea trout fishing in Orkney.
