Not being able to go too far we decided to check out the action at Fanshawe. The weather was a bit of everything; threatening clouds, the odd sprinkle and periods of brilliant sunshine.
But before leaving home we spotted a number of Scaup on the Avon River – off to a good start!
The colours around the lake were spectacular! This Kingfisher cooperated long enough for a couple of photos.
Not quite sure if these were Tufted Ducks. They were pretty hard to identify from across the lake. Unfortunately the photos are a little blurry too.
This Blue Jay seemed to have been looking for shelter from the wind which had picked up.
