Maple Lodge Nature Reserve

A brief early evening visit showed evidence of yesterday's high winds with many large tree limbs laying scattered about the reserve. Along the path leading away from the Clubhouse I discovered a dead Water Shrew as nearby a Song Thrush collected food. Waterfowl observed with young included several broods of Coot and 3 broods of Mallard. A pair of Pochard are reportedly present with a brood of young too but did not show themselves to me today.
