Ghadira Nature Reserve

If the sun is out and the wind isn't, odds are we'll be outside on the weekends. Usually, we head to the beach, be it January or June. Living by the sea is a treat and one we may not always have at our fingertips.
A few weeks ago, we ventured to Ghadira Nature Reserve on a nice Saturday afternoon. Ghadira is a salt marsh on the north of Malta.
It isn't a big place, but it is protected and offers an unusual estuary setting for Malta. 

We got to spot a few young flamingos; their plumage is not adult color (pink/orange) yet, as they haven't had access to a great shellfish diet.
But we loved to see them and hike around Elmer Fudd style... verrrry, verrry quiet!
