Railway Marsh Trumpeter Swans

This fine pair of Trumpeter Swans was seen on Railway Marsh this Tuesday during the weekly swan count. About 15-20 swans are wintering on Denman before flying back to their breeding grounds in the Yukon and Alaska.

Bald Eagle Feast

As the snow melted, the bodies of two young deer emerged behind my garage. They had apparently starved during the prolonged snowy spell in December and early January. I moved these bodies into the open so that the eagles could have ready access and I could get some photographs. It was 5 days before the eagles started to eat this feast.

Sunset over Baynes Sound

I went down to the Gladstone Road beach on Friday to watch yet another super sunset. It foretells continuing good weather.
