East Point Park consists of 55 hectares of open undeveloped land wedged between a water treatment plant to the the west and a sewage treatment plant to the east.
Here is how it looked on this billowing cloudy day:
I will identify it at the end of the post.
The yellowish bill and bronze colouring on the side identify this as a Starling.
I thought you might like this write up about the familiar rifle range we know from our walks in Marie Curtis Park. It has an even longer history than I had realised! I’ve been enjoying all the writeups from walks you’ve done this year.
Hope we can get back in the group soon!
Long Branch Rifle Range | Hiking the GTA
A moon-flooded prairie; a straying
Of leal-hearted lovers; a baying
Of far away watching dogs; a dreaming
Of brown-fisted farmers; a gleaming
Of fireflies eddying nigh, —
And that is July! – James N. Matthews (1852–1910)
Gorgeous place. Beautiful details (including ones of nature in the Marie Curtis Park rifle area article). I also am really looking forward to resuming walks in the fall! Thanks, Miles!
