Loon

British readers will know this bird as a Great Northern Diver but here we know them as Loons, probably because of their maniac laughter calls. The sound of the northwoods it has been described as. For almost twenty years at this time of September we would rent the same cottage at Kenauk and spend the best part of week pottering in the forest boating on the lake, watching birds and harassing beavers … occasionally the odd bear too. This was one of the iconic Loons on the lake back in 2009. We haven’t been there for a while, not since retirement in fact on the basis of get ut while it’s still a good memory (and affordable which it is increasingly less so).  Loons are always special though.

Memory Sunday #11

Dawn on the Lake

Kenauk again, and a few years ago. Early September – the sun was rising across the mist-shrouded lake. The disc was still hidden behind the trees on either side of a channel through to the main Lac Papineau and for just a couple of minutes this happened.
