Nature notes, Sunday 26 February, -7°C.
Walked by Hespeler Millpond. The fresh layer of snow was not slippery. We saw four or five swans. There were some rabbit tracks across the snow that’s laid on the frozen surface of the millpond. There’s also a fallen tree that was felled by a beaver. The sky was blue, crisp, and clear.

Nature notes, 20 February 2023. 3°C. Sunny with a few clouds. Damp.
Went for a walk in Dumfries Conservation Area. Saw a few ferns, some birch trees, various conifers, a grey squirrel, and lots of chickadees at a feeder by the parking lot. Also this lovely moss. Now that the snow is almost all gone, the forest floor, and stumps and rocks with moss on them, are once again visible.Continue reading
