Ile-Bizard

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.

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.
