A little further upriver, this Great Blue Heron appeared both graceful and majestic in flight...
Other wildlife seen today were red-winged blackbirds, tree swallows, musquashes, turtles, mallards, and Canada geese. Also saw several good sized fish rise above the water's surface for insects.
Today's trash haul was a modest 24 pieces that included large chunks of flotation (styrofoam), plastic bags, aluminum and plastic containers, and a Carson Irrigation Control box cover. The box cover may have come from Nashawtuc Country Club which is just a little further upriver. I'll hold on to it for a while in case someone wants it.
The breakdown: 6 recyclables (2 redeemable) and 18 miscellaneous rubbish. YTD total stands at 2104.
