A New Mammal on the Island!

Julie has arrived! She will be taking over Eco-Guardian for the summer, keeping a close eye on our animal neighbours, monitoring human activity in the reserve, and doing the maintenance and upkeep required to keep the station running. I will be training her over the next few weeks.

Hungry Red-tailed Hawk

In other news, we had a visit from a Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo Jamaicensis) a few days ago.





The Chase

I was lucky enough to capture this action-shot as it swept overhead.

June continues to be rather dismal and cold. Temperature has averaged about 12 degrees Celsius here with a high of 15.2…. pout.
