Obsevation Deck

 On the viewing platform and looking easterly over the Cranberry Marsh, Whitby

The marsh is still fairly quiet - the July DULLdrums. A few Great Blue Herons and Great Egrets have arrived for summer fishing but many birds are still at their breeding grounds way far north.

 Looking southeasterly

The water is high this year. We've had quite a lot of rain, although nowhere near as much as we had in June.

Looking southerly on a beautiful July afternoon

The boats are on Lake Ontario just beyond the marsh.

I am linking to Good Fences HERE

There use to be a sign at the marsh describing it as Canada's Amazon. You might have knowledge of this, but next time you there go west on Victoria St. to Halls Rd. and go south. You will find trails on the east side of the road that have a very short walk to viewing platforms. Enjoy.

When it comes to birding...July is truly DULLdrums, I agree. Love the colors of the fencing around the platform.

I sure wish these scenes were in my viewfinder!

Cranberry Morning said...

Beautiful, peaceful, a wonderful cranberry morning on Cranberry Marsh. :-) The boats on Lake Ontario remind me that I have yet to get up to Duluth this summer to visit Lake Superior. Love the Great Lakes!

That's a really big marsh. I can imagine how lively it would be when the dulldrums are over and the birds have come back.
