NT3573 : Reclaimed ash lagoons

taken 13 years ago, near to Wallyford, East Lothian, Great Britain

Reclaimed ash lagoons.
Reclaimed ash lagoons.
Not long ago this was beach, only exposed at low tide, the shore being by the racecourse. The beach was used to deposit waste ash from the Cockenzie power station and a lot of land behind a seawall was reclaimed in the form of ash lagoons. This industrial wasteland has undergone further reclamation to form a very fine bird reserve with a good overwintering wader population. One of the pools with hides can be seen across the finch filled rough grassland.
