Sea salt pans fed by Esteiro de Maria Nova in Portugal (close to Faro and Parque Natural da Ria Formosa).

100s if not 1000s of locks attached to this pedestrian bridge over the River Wye at Bakewell. The bridge takes people from the main car park to the town centre – where you can purchase the famous Bakewell Pudding – or buy another lock to add to the bridge.
This Little Egret was taking advantage of the fish stranded by the recent flooding of the River Wharfe near Wetherby. A few years back these birds would have attracted a small crowd of ‘twitchers’, but they seem to be quite well established in the UK now.
