Delta at the head of Upper Mask Bay
Delta at the head of Upper Mask Bay
For all practicable purposes, Upper Mask Bay can be considered as a lough separate from Lough Mask. Seven kilometres long and a little over one kilometre wide, it narrows to a channel only 15 metres wide where it enters the main body of Lough Mask, and there is a strong current through the channel. The river entering the head of this "bay" provides a fine example of a delta.
