Guineafowl in Mangroves

In January and February 2013 at the Nahoon Estuary at low tide, I have seen guineafowl walking amongst the mangroves and wondered what they are doing there.   Presumably they are foraging for food and if so what ?    While guineafowl  are omnivorous, there seems little for them to eat there.   Fiddler crabs, which are numerous amongst the mangroves, are the only potential animal food.   Clearly, more observations are needed to ellucidate the mystery.
