Wetland Wanderin'

We had another good walk, this one was through the Tamar River Conservation Area.  This is an important wetlands reserve about 15 minutes from our house.  The walk comprises a boardwalk over the marsh to Tamar Island.

The boardwalk wanders through the reeds to a paperbark forest where there is a bird blind.  We spooked a pair of ducks and their brood on the way.  The black geese and their goslings were out, and we also saw a Purple Swamphen.

The estuary environment changes with the tides to reveal the mud bottom.  You can see where the birds have walked!
