A Sudden Visit to Canada
Sadly my daughter-in law has to dash from Calgary to the Netherlands as her mother is terminally ill. Beryl and I have responded to the request to travel out to Calgary on Sunday to help look after the grandchildren. It is all a bit sudden and we will arrive to temperatures of minus 13 degrees and a lot of snow.
There might be time to look for some birds but they will be few in species number. Owls are good at this time with Snowy Owls turning up in a lot of places. Hawk and Great Grey Owls might also be found. White-winged Crossbills and Bohemian Waxwings might also be possible so watch this space.
