Lake flamingo pink because of drought


Pink Wagejot, photo by Flying Focus Aerial Photography

This photo by Flying Focus Aerial Photography shows Wagejot nature reserve on Texel island in the Netherlands this week.

Usually, the water of this shallow lake near the Wadden sea is greyish-greenish. Now, it is flamingo pink.

Probably, algae cause this. Because of drought, which increases salinity.

I have good memories of Wagejot. Both in a cold winter, with only a lonely redshank on the ice; and at warmer times with many birds.
