Having a couple of spare hours this morning I realised that it’s over a year since I was last at the Ile-Bizard nature park so off I went for a walk along the passarelle. Warm and humid and pleasantly few people out there to get in the way but also not that many birds on display either. Turtles on logs, a couple of Kingfishers, GBHerons, Common Merganser, an excess of Mallards and invisible chittering from the trees.

The boardwalks are passable again but there is a new section in a state of collapse. Time the city got this sorted out.

Northern corner of the main marsh
Eastern Painted Turtle
Female Belted Kingfisher
Immature Merganser
Female Belted Kingfisher
Green Frog
Great Blue Heron
Butterfly – that bit’s easy but I was just positioning myself for a clear view of the wings when an oaf on a cycle zipped past at speed and scared us both. Opportunity for ID lost.
