I checked out the sunrise at Sandy Point and Possum Point this morning, and it was another gray dawn. I pondered for a few minutes, then decided to give Schoolhouse Pond a try. It’s often productive at this time of year.
Visibility was pretty poor, but I could see hundreds of Canada Geese, many Mallards and seagulls. but not much else. As the sun rose I was able to see a few Hooded Mergansers.
I walked around a while, and was thinking about leaving when I saw a disturbance in the water which turned out to be a River Otter.
I followed him around the pond for 45 minutes or so and managed to get a few close ups in the poor light, which made the trip worthwhile.
