and in another marshy area, this Willet. The destination for the night was Rochon Sands Provincial Park and we arrived there mid afternoon to find a lovely campground and park with only a few other campers, although obviously this is a popular park in season.
This Great Blue Heron was fishing in the reeds. Out here on the west coast we are used to seeing Heron, but they aren't seen as frequently in Alberta.
This shows the campsite beside us - we were one over - there was a wide lawn area with a washrooms and the path to access the lake area. All very well maintained.
Out on the lake there was another of those rocks, covered with Double Crested Cormorant, Gulls and Pelican.
and more Pelican. I walked over to a boat launch where there was a bit of a jetty....I walked out on the jetty and these guys were busy fishing in the area beside me. Note the pair of Lesser Scaup ducks....the female is sitting on a nest.
