Photopoints to monitor expansion of mangroves across the saltmarsh, wrecks and other features. The annual comparisons run down the columns, and will continue to be added over time. In the first two and a half years of monitoring there has been a visbile increase in the extent of the mangroves and a reduction in saltmarsh extent.
