In the 1920s, Puta Bay of the Caspian Sea was dyked and partly land-claimed. The remaining water-body was known thereafter as Red Lake or Kizilgel.
In the early 1940s, ducks, Fulica atra and Phoenicopterus ruber wintered at Lake Krasnoye. Some stands of Typha were present there then (Vereshchagin 1946, 1950). In the late 1980s, the lake no longer supported any emergent vegetation.
