Oh my goodness, an entire 365 days have passed since I set up this little effort and posted my first aimless little post.
I'm here; I have a blogOh yay. I have a blog. This is it. What to write?
Pretty clever, huh?
Yes, there has too been a bit of progress here at SLWB! For example, I now know how to get more than one photo into the post, and I know how to link to stuff.
In anticipation of this first anniversary of my blog & me, I returned to Delta Marsh - or I tried to....
The place is still flooded - I mean, the cottage, the beach, the research facilities, the visitor's centre and boardwalk into a bit of the marsh is off-limits. No Entry! Nossir, no one gets past the guard shack unless one is a cottage owner.
I reluctantly turned the JVD unit around and headed back to Portage la Prairie, but not before having a little discussion, with the private security guard, about not seeing any signs about the No-Entry thing anywhere along the route. He agreed it was too bad no body thought signs might be a good idea, you know, especially since Delta Marsh is a bit of a well-known birding mecca.
Oh well, it was still nice to be sort of at the marsh. I saw some Am. White Pelicans, many duck species, Double-crested Cormorants, Great Blue Herons, White-crowned Night-Herons and Red-winged Blackbirds.
