Probably pouring in FROM the sea!
Big spring tides last week, they probably topped it up.

at least while there is a slight flow of water it helps keep the lake clear !

but the disadvantage is that it is almost tidal if it is going up and down with the sea

 i know its been too low for my meter class yacht on a couple of occasions last summer , but ive been led to beleive that this was due to the pump failure but as we all know they have been working in that area for quite a while towards the end of last summer it should have been sorted by now ?  apparently in years gone by it was filled purely by the high tide , hence its current levels as we experienced the highest spring tides for several years last week .
