Watery Wednesday

An old one from 2011.  Can you see the ducks just above the center pond?

Mary MacADNski: These are salt water ponds leading to the sea. A great area for birds.

This is a wonderful view, Mary and yes I see the ducks.
Did they cut the reed or did they burn it??
Mary MacADNski: This is early spring so the grasses and reeds have been weighed down with a winter's snow. This is not burned. The black grass is seaweed as these are sea ponds.
Beautiful, Mary - I love the grasses mixed with the blue water. I can see the ducks!
I think you've posted this video before- thank you for posting it again!
Mary MacADNski: I love this old folk song. Moments ago I looked it up on Wiki and was amazed to see how many covers it boasts.

The pools and grasses are great...the ducks are a bonus.
Mary MacADNski: Spring flings are happening in every pond, sea or freshwater.
I like the vastness of this, Mary. I'm sure the ducks are in heaven there.

And I LOVE the video.
Mary MacADNski: At this time of years pond of all kinds are building nests or laying. I have only one pair of ducks this year.

Yes I can see them
Mary MacADNski: Most ponds are sporting a few geese or ducks these days.

I love this scene, it is always good to see some wild land. The song is good, but although the singer is good, I can’t help feel that she would benefit from so,e coaching.
Mary MacADNski: Wouldn't coaching be a treat. This woman is also known for her banjo and violin playing. I like that they do the old folk songs.

Looks like they are spoilt for choice as to where to swim.
Mary MacADNski: Sea or freshwater ponds are very busy these days. I love it!
Looks like the grass or whatever has been burnt. Happily the ducks were not roasted
Mary MacADNski: These are salt water sea ponds. What look black is sea weed. This has not been burned.
I would love to wander between those ponds.
Mary MacADNski: Easily done, Brian, at low tide. I know several good places to get into the sea ponds. Rubber boots required.

It looks a wonderful place for bird watching.
Mary MacADNski: These sea ponds can be busy places. This one has geese, black ducks, gulls, eagles, long legged birds that I have not even tried to identify and mallard. It changes every minute.

The ducks I see and some other flying thing in the air. This area looks boggy.
Mary MacADNski: Yes it is very boggy. As I said to Brian, rubber boots required. Lots of bird life.
I can just make them out smile
