Nature Trust volunteers watching over the turtle nest at Ġnejna Bay on Tuesday night treated to a spectacle of light from every direction as the top picture by Elaine Bajada shows.

Ġnejna was surrounded by lightning and heavy showers but the bay itself was spared.

"We're hoping that these last few days will be free from heavy showers in the bay, so as to optimise the chances of a successful hatching," the volunteers said. 

Andrea Muscat also sent the picture (below) of lightning strikes off Malta.
