July 2020

The water has continued to rise in the wetlands of the Sanctuary and it is really something to behold with water extending into the trees at many points meaning you are quite likely to see a Coot, Mallard or muskrat swimming around under the tree canopy.  Sticking out of the water you can also see many kinds of flowering plants such as Mealy Primrose and Pink Wintergreen.  This also seems the season for Wild Roses and the scent of them is quite amazing.

Keep a watch out for the the young of various types of waterfowl like the American Coot – they’re not so small anymore!
