On Saturday June 1st I got up extra early and headed out to Chappell Marsh for four hours. It’s a Ducks Unlimited Conservation Area just behind the railyards in Saskatoon. I’d never been out there before. There are good walking trails and a variety of habitats – marshland, woodland and grassland. I saw lots of birds and even added a couple to my life list. I would definitely recommend going out there. I will go again. Next time, though, I think I’ll wait until tick season is over – I brought 4 home on me, but none had attached yet. Also, evening would be a better time to visit as then you wouldn’t be looking across the water into the sun.
Here are some of my pictures from the day:
