TG0644 : Marshland meets shingle

Marshland meets shingle
Marshland meets shingle
The village of Salthouse can be glimpsed in the distance. The lagoons immediately behind the shingle bank are influenced by sea water and fresh water. At times they can be completely dry and sometimes they can be saltier than the sea. Due to these unique conditions, a rare assemblage of wildlife can be found here and saline lagoons are recognised as being one of the most important habitats for wildlife in Europe. Ever since management of the shingle bank has ceased it is getting shallower, spreading landwards at an estimated rate of approximately 1 metre/year, resulting in the saline lagoons being filled in.
