Shorebirds at Neys Provincial Park

I stopped in at Neys Provincial Park for an hour or so.

An unexpected treat was the sight of an Osprey (not terribly common on the north shore) snagging a good sized fish (Pink Salmon? Lake Whitefish?) off the mouth of the Little Pic River.
There were few shorebirds- just a single Killdeer, a Buff-breasted Sandpiper and a trio of Sanderlings.

It's getting late in the season for dragonflies. I saw only a few Shadow Darners and Common Green Darners on the beach.
