What a miserable wet,cold day today was. If I wasn’t a dog owner I never would have ventured out for a walk…as it was, it was a very quick one.
through the almost solid sheet of rain could see that there were a fair number of eagles out on the flats, and lots of swans all along the foreshore.
the ‘eagle trees’ over there at the northern edge of the park were also quite well populated.
the swans today all appeared to be Trumpeter Swans…including this family with 3 young ones that were settling down for a nap in this spot.
others were feeding right off of where we stood. Trumpeters eat aquatic vegetation and you can see from the surface, there is a good bed of vegetation here…
this one was feeding in what must be a deeper spot, a couple of pairs of Gadwall were keeping him company…
and we’ll end off with another trio.
