We are not alone in the area in noticing that the birds are finding more than enough “wild” food due to the unseasonably mild weather we are enjoying with the result that our ‘Feederwatch’ counts are way down on previous years.

So – as there are no birds worth the trouble of describing in the garden this weekend here is a picture taken at sunset last night beside the St. Lawrence river at the end of our road.  Note the crescent moon rising over Ile Perrot
