I was told a couple of days ago, by a native of Rogaland, that the coast here is very similar to the Danish coast Peter. Well I'm not so sure! This is a glorious long beach, and the colours are so striking!

I think I can see an outlet to the sea. How clean is the water in it? The reason I ask is that there are many outlets onto beaches in Rogaland, and the water is supposedly cleaned using a reed bed filter system, before it reaches the sea or lake. The system doesn't always work!!

I'm not so sure too dear Amelia how can Norges fjell kust at any point be similar to this?? :)))

Thank you for being the first here!! it's really one of my own dear favorites!

Outlets here are heavily regulated especially when attached to salt or fresh water recipients ...here we have rootzone filters..but mainly to few or single households. I have no idea of how conditions are here in Tisvildeleje But it's almost certainly not a root filterbed...Do you want to know more am I willing to investigate a bit further.

Well in many ways, the coast around Rogaland would seem to be fairly similar to Denmark, as there are some sandy beaches along the Jæren coast, as well as beaches of småstein eller glacial rullestein!

The filter system for farmland seems to work OK here. They construct several pond systems with reeds, and this seems to remove excessive nitrates and phosphates before the run off enters the lakes. But I worry about the apparent lack of adequate treatment for sewage! In principle, the filter bed system seems a good idea, but in practice, given the relatively high population density along the flat coastal areas of Rogaland, there needs to be a re-think! Near the outlets there are warnings, both in Norwegian and English, about the dangers of playing near an area where there might be faecal material. To my mind, this is not satisfactory. We both know that the sea can cope with many things, but there is a limit don't you think?

I would be interested to know how they do things in Denmark.

We have had hail showers today, and a very cold north wind. Can winter be returning?
