Comments: Most noticeable was the large reduction in sand level at Post 10. This area now has a greater range of sand height than Post 8, although Post 8 continues to have the most active dune toe.
The beach profile at Post 10 also confirms sand loss across the beach greater than at any other post. This Post will need watching as it is now verging on being unstable and could easily be knocked over.
An anomaly in the active part of the beach (Posts 5 - 10) is Post 9 as it has one of the least sand height variations although there has been sand loss from the shallow water area of the beach.
