The south western area of Bluffers Park had been closed for several years as the shoreline was being reinforced. I was delighted to see this morning that it is now open and there are many magnificent vistas to be seen.
A little fancy footwork or removing your shoes can get you easily to the western beach.
During my entire visit, I could hear and see a multitude of Bank Swallows overhead,
These birds nest in colonies all along the bluffs:
They pause in their insect-searching flights in one area and it is an amazing sight:
Thought this would be of interest to our bird-loving community. 😊
Our seasons have no fixed returns,
Without our will they come and go;
At noon our sudden summer burns,
Ere sunset all is snow. – James Russell Lowell (1819–91)
Stunning swallows. Beautiful
Such great photos, thanks!
Your pictures are fantastic and am glad to be learning the names and some habits of nature around us!
