Tagus Estuary Salt Marsh

Watercolour on paper. 17 x 18 cm, 2023

Tagus Estuary Salt marsh is one destination of many migratory birds.

The flora of a salt marsh that is found at the water must have: the ability to survive high concentrations of salt; periodical submerson; a certain amount of movement of the water.

This flora is important to the stability of the salt marsh in trapping and binding sediments.

Salt marshes also support migratory birds and supply coastal protection as well.
