Day 239 - 26th August 2013 - Another adventure and Shore birds

Monday is here again, oh how I'd like to continue the weekend. Nice to think about but guess the real world must continue. Work today and I'm on my own now, our summer student finished on Friday, will miss her. She's been such a great help this summer and truly a wonderful young woman. Hopefully she'll return to us next year. Now it will take me a few days to get back into the swing of running things solo again. Have people coming to do research today and it's hard to say what else the day will bring. Guess I'll just go with the flow. Exercise Class tonight, with all the walking I've done this weekend I should be limbered up!
Another fabulous weekend. Sunday turned out lovely and fine, once the fog lifted. Went for my walk in the morning, then we had breakfast at the Hall and I got  some work done at home, Larry watered the garden and we took off after lunch for another adventure. Decided to head down towards Baccaro to see what we could find along the shores. Great afternoon, and a lot cooler. When we left home it was +26 C, down at the Baccaro Light it was +16 C. Sorry to friends and relatives in the area that we didn't stop by but there was a mission in place. We checked out Fort St. Louis and then down to Blanche and then home around 5:30 pm.  Supper, dishes and all that jazz. Took a lot of photos so I spent most of the evening going through them to identify what we had seen and editing them.
Thick fog on the lake Sunday morning.
A Gannet. Actually there were quite a few that flew by.

Willet at Baccaro Light.

 Turkey Vulture, we actually saw three of them which was kind of cool.
Great Blue Heron. He just finished eating a frog.

 Yellow Legs - the large one on the left is a Greater and the others are Lesser.

Enjoy your day!
