Salgados lagoon is very dry 22nd June 2017

As you know, we have had no rain here now for several weeks. As a result, everywhere is dry and mostly brown. Water levels in the bird sanctuary at Salgados are very low. I took these pictures during the afternoon of Thurday 22nd June. Took the bike, got a flat tyre on the way back which pleased me not!

I don’t know whether the breach in the sand is intentional or just the action of the sea. It might have been necessary to drain stagnant water from the lagoon. Certainly, about half of it was almost dry, with the birds and some big fish concentrated down at the other end.

This one is looking towards the Salgados golf course
