Caption: Aerial photograph of Tollesbury managed realignment site, Essex, UK. Managed realignment involves allowing areas previously protected by flood-defences to flood. This creates new intertidal habitats and sustainable flood defences. The existing flood defences in Tollesbury were breached (centre) in August 1995. Since then the previously agricultural land has transformed to salt marshes and mud flats. Photographed in 2014.
