Some members of the BPQ Sanctuaries Committee went out in the rain today to check the status of a small property we own in the middle of Hudson.  Only one member had actually ever been there (!) as it is so small – about 3 acres – but it turns out to be quite a little gem.  An area of marshland with a wooded hillside beyond and its hard to realise that it is actually situated in the middle of an upmarket housing area.  We were greeted by Green Heron and Belted Kingfisher within a few minutes of our arrival.  interesting place.

The hazy bits on the picture are rain drops – it was very wet indeed.
