So, with everything in the garden in as good shape as possible, Sunday seemed like a perfect day to check out the wildlife of Falls Lake. We've never paddled in a lake at such a high water level, and the rain clearly brought in significant amounts of debris. Yet, our way was not impeded, and it was a typical day on the lake - which means it never looks the same, no matter how many times you check it out. Herons were somewhat scarce, but we were watched in two places by vigilant Osprey, the turtles enjoyed having so many new floating perches, and, by sound and once by sight, it was clear that beavers were at work dealing with the reorganization of their habitat brought on by the heavy rain.
Here are just a few pictures.
