Now that there are enough stretches of clear water for them to land in, the geese are back, a potential hazard to pilots, but a welcome sight all the same.
Most of the geese and ducks returning to our neighbourhood were out of the river today, pecking at the grass or swimming in puddles of melted snow. The river itself was flowing fast, full of choppy waves, because it is windy at the moment, with 30 knot gusts. The wind chill tonight is back down to -16ºC!
