High Equinox Tides

The last email I got from Roger Lane identified the problems the equinox tides may have reaching the pool.

"Tide line was strewn with the urchin-like 'Sea Potato', many hundreds, dozs. of dead crabs, shells from oysters down to winkles, some partial fish skeletons and more green sea-weed. The high equinox tides MAY not make it into the pool since the council have not cleared the entrance stream (partly blocked half-way down to sea), but IF we get a strong S/SW wind sea-water may push through the blockage (reed- growth)."

Thanks for that Roger. I suspect most of us are kind of ignorant on these matters.
