As discussed back in September 2018, we need another tag for tidal
channels, also known as "pills" or "tidal creeks"
These are natural tidal waterways within the coastal, environment with
bi-directional flow of salt water, so they are not a stream or river
estuary. They should be located outside of the coastline.
Such channels commonly form along protected coasts with limited wave
action and a gradual slope, usually within tidal flats, salt marshes
1) Wöhrdener Loch - tidal channel in mud flats:
2) Barbara Channel - channel in mud flats:
3) Cabbage Creek - tidal creek in salt marsh:
4) Tidal channel in mangroves:

PS: Sorry, Simon - last one this month - but I did map several hundred
of these myself - lots of mangroves here.
