I was down at Moreton shore yesterday at low tide and came across what seemed like wooden posts embedded into the sand about 50m offshore. They were still upright, seemed fairly sturdy still and there was about 7 of them in almost an exact row. Does anyone know what these would have been or whether there's ever been a structure on the beach? I'm aware of the prehistoric forest near Meols that used to be seen occasionally, but these were definitely rounded stumps rather than the remains of trees. Just curious whether anyone knew why they might have been there!

Can't see pics but I think there used to be medieval (?) fish traps along that coastline; maybe that's what you saw.

Ah ok, thank you, that could be it. I’d not heard of fish traps like that before but I’ve had a quick look and it’s definitely possible given the alignment of the posts. Just had never seen anything in the sand down there before but curiosity sated!
