The Sanctuary is really teeming with life this spring. Earlier on the Tree Swallows arrived in huge numbers – filling the sky as they swooped and soared above. Now we seem to have a plethora of Goldfinches that are a real delight with their ‘sa-wheat, sa-wheat” call. There have already been some Canada Geese and goslings seen crossing Sanctuary Road between water bodies – oh so cute! Make sure to bring your binoculars to get a better view of the variety of waterfowl out on the wetland too – a real favourite is the Ruddy Duck with its upright tail and distinctive blue bill.
