Preparatory outing

Not enough free time right now still to get serious about this – but an afternoon visit to the Cap-St-Jacques nature park today in fresh temperatures and warm sunshine was delightfully free of “people”.  Clearly, NOT going at weekends avoids the hoi polloi and makes the wildlifing experience much more pleasant.  This is the big benefit of retirement I think.

Found a small island in the river off the park with a flock of warblers caterpillering in the trees – mostly Yellow Rumps.

A couple of my friends, the Great Egrets were fishing frantically in the shallows …
