Land surveying

The wonderful Philipsburg migratory bird sanctuary which BPQ owns down near the
Vermont border is being surveyed for bird populations and J and I spent
a very wet and muddy day today setting out survey points for people to
use over the rest of the season.


But we did get to see some good birds – see below:
