Well, the lagoon has well and truly been breached.
Quite surprising given how calm the sea currently is but as you can see in the pic below, the salt water is making it's way in.
If you look at the water colour you can see the dividing line between the salt and fresh water, looking the other direction from the bridge you can see it already mixing.
The ducks were interesting, they were up and down the dividing line but always stayed freshwater side.

That's interesting, it was nowhere near breaching in the several visits we had the other week. Has there been any particularly high tides?

No Col, that's why I said "quite surprising", we've seen, over the years some big storms, and they have failed or just about made a breach, but this is nothing like we've seen before. A very clear, very wide free flowing opening.
As the tide came in, and as gentle as ever seen, the lagoon recieved salt water, as the tide went out the lagoon, freshwater with the new salt water mix, went out.
Pity the wildlife that's going to get done by that. The ducks had it sorted but the fish, turtles and every other living thing that survives only one or the other isn't going to be welcoming this.
No sign of any action from any authority to shore up or sort, maybe they've decided to let nature do what nature does.

I was there myself yesterday afternoon. Suffered as a result, it was hotter than I realised after I had been puffing around on my bike for 3 hours.

The seaward side was almost dry except for that bit. All the birds and a lot of big fish were down the other end.

My pictures later.

The bank that had been breached is now reinstated, we are back to two bodies of water again, a lake and the sea....
