This first shot was taken yesterday, 10 December 2012 at 4:40pm, looking shoreward from a point on my Line 164, about 300 meters east of the river mouth. This is a site I monitor routinely. The photo was taken from just above Mean Lower Low Water.
There was very little sand retained at this site just two weeks ago.
This next shot was taken from atop the berm on the east shore of the river, just upstream from the mouth, at about 4:30 pm.
Its not stunningly obvious given the perspective, but if you look close in the far field of this pano, to the right, you can see the two long shore-perpindicular bars that have built out from the river mouth. Both extend ~100+ meters or more at this point. Both weren't there a month ago, at least anywhere near that length or extent.
And finally, here is a view of the bar built on the west side of the mouth...couldn't pano this one, but this shot was taken at sunset on 10 December, at a water level of about -0.25 m MLLW. I walked out about 100m on to this brand new sand bar and shot this view back towards Place Road
