`I started out at Beach Road this morning, but the strong wind and cold temps made me cut it short. There wasn’t much to see, in any case.
Quiet Waters was much better, with ducks, Ospreys, Eagles and my best look at a Kingfisher in flight to date.
It’s still awfully cold for Spring. It was still in the thirties this morning when I went to Possum Point. I got a couple of sunrise shots, but there weren’t many ducks, so I headed to Beach Road.
Al;though there were ducks, they stayed pretty for from shore, and didn’t give me much of a chance.
Quiet Waters was also slow, with fewer birds than in recent days.
I went back to Possum Point this morning for more sunrise images which was OK, but the ducks were missing.Even the Ospreys were shy.
Beach drive was much better, with plenty of ducks and Grebes. I expect this to be a good spot in the Spring.
Quiet Waters was the best spot this morning, with Eagles and Ospreys.
Graeme and I met early again and went to Possum Point to try for more sunrise images. The Ospreys were cooperative, and the Red Breasted Mergansers are still hanging around. A few Scaup and Buffleheads are still feeding there as well.
Quiet Waters was productive also, with some very cooperative birds.
Thomas Point was a bust, and I fear it’s done for the season.
I met Graeme early and we went to Possum Point to shoot some sunrises. The fog spoiled our plans, but we found some Ospreys and Mergansers, as well as a few other birds.
Graeme then showed me a place on Beach Road which looks promising for the future.
Quiet Waters treated us well, with Wood Ducks and Great Blue Herons as well as a nice hike through the woods.
