It was a beautiful morning today, so after a large and very yummy breakfast at Cork & Flame I decided to drive over to Bunn’s Creek. Tomorrow the winter weather is forecast to return for a few days. But first – my breakfast!
At first it appeared as if all the ice on the creek had disappeared, but it didn’t take long until I found some. I didn’t find a lot of ice, but there were spots where it was still holding on.
I followed the creek all the way to the culvert shown in the last photo, but I couldn’t find out where it comes out. I walked over the culvert and along to another park, but when I couldn’t see any sign of it I turned back. This is the furthest I have gone in this direction, but I didn’t expect it to disappear underground.
On my way back I found this White-breasted Nuthatch on top of a pole. He moved just as I clicked to take the photo but thought I’d show him to you anyway.
I walked past my starting point where the car was parked and continued along the path beside the creek – taking a couple more photos of the water.
I then found a pair of Mallard Ducks, who nicely posed for a couple of photos.
I was almost back to the parking lot when I saw a Muskrat swimming in the creek. I managed a decent shot of him (or her).
It is after 2pm here now and I am not even a little bit hungry after that huge breakfast this morning. My FitBit tells me I’ve already walked a little over 6 miles today and I still have time to walk more.
