The herons are back, nesting at the rookery. We came back from Kathleen’s yesterday, chased by Alberta Clipper number seven or eight, scudding heavy grey clouds across the sky.
I told Jan I saw a heron a couple of days ago. She’s seen one, too, so we came across Yellow Creek Road to get to the rookery.
The park has made a small pull off area near the Bath Road bridge over the river. Usually it’s packed with cars that have stopped to watch the magnificent birds, but no so many yesterday.
