Young Bonaparte’s

Thursday 23rd August I went out to try to see a Marbeld Godwit near Beauharnois, unfortunately the fates conspired against me and the people who wrecked their cars causing the road to close just short of the turn off. Undeterred I dropped in for a look at the outflow below the hydro and was amazed by how many Bonaparte’s Gulls and Common Terns there were. The low water levels have left some rocks exposed and the immature Bonaparte’s Gulls were loafing and preening and fending of the occasional young Common Tern that tried to pitch down.

Below a few shots, note the poor bird with the growths on each knee, not long for this World probably.
