Herons, Cormorants and Gulls eat a lot of fish which is not surprising. What was surprising was to find three birds in the act of doing just this at Humber Bay.
8 am group:
We also had a raccoon:
Now Autumn’s fire burns slowly along the woods,
And day by day the dead leaves fall and melt. – William Allingham (1824–89)
Talk about a bounty of birds! As for fish catching–I saw another instance of this from the bridge before other people arrived for the walk, along with a swimming beaver and a mink scurrying along the rocks. What a morning, and one of those cases when I wish I had a camera. Thanks for the record, Miles!
(P.S. If I no longer post a comment each day, it is because I am now taking part directly and thought I would give people a break. It is certainly wonderful to be back, taking actual walks!)
