We've been in Canada for just over a week now, and so far so good…kind of. The fierce little nighthawks have returned from their migration and are feeding in the exact location they have been for the past 30+ years. Although they mysteriously disappeared on us for two days, they are back in full force and last night we managed to catch three females (they are so cool!).

We looked in at the 'breakfast buffet' as we went ...

Well, this has now become a university essay-length epic, but it has been an eventful week. I’m sure I’ll keep you all posted as the cabin fever sets in and I run out of books to read…
Until next time,
