Thanks to Jim O'Brien for the above pictures. Jim tells the Gurn: "I went for a walk on the East Beach from Kingsteps this afternoon - first time for over a year, fine but cold day. Found a new footbridge over the old course of the River Nairn by the end of the dunes.
It's made from fallen young pines and bits of a white flagpole lashed together with blue nylon builders line.
A passer-by said it has been there for six months or so, built by a local man. It's quite a step up onto it, and there is a handrail to hang onto, but some may have difficulty keeping their feet on it.
Quite a good idea, but I saw two people carry dogs over, because pooches aren't sure about it."
It looks like the bridge has undergone an upgrade Jim since this observer was last out that way.
