The First Spring Arrivals - Ottawa East with Tony Beck

March 29, 2012

Today it was Helena, Brenda, Peter, Rick, Tony & me.  We met at Dewberry Trail, then went to the Park & Ride at Navan to car pool from there.  We backtracked to Milton Rd, then on to Smith Road where we saw our first cranes and a flock of 25 turkeys.  We returned to Milton Rd where we saw the balance of the cranes.  We went east on Perrault to Trim then McFadden to Frank Kenny.  We returned to Milton, then went east on Russell back to Frank Kenny.  We went north on the latter, then east on Huisman past Rockdale to Magladry and finally Heuvalmans out to  Dunning.  We went north on Dunning where we saw the Snow Geese.  We took Dunning as far as Giroux and went to check the ponds. Finally, we returned to Frank Kenny and went to Petrie Island to finish the day.
