The Shingle Spit Nest is very close to where you get off the ferry that arrives at Hornby Island when you come over from Denman.
The Nest is a bit hard to spot, but you can see the Eagles coming & going & perched in Trees near the ferry.
This is a beautiful spot, overlooking Shingle Spit, a really cool formation, the waters of Lambert Channel, which run between Hornby & Denman, Denman Island itself, & an almost never-ending spectacle of wildlife including Ducks, Great Blue Herons, Eagles of all ages, Orca & even Humpback Whales, as well as Cormorants, Black Oystercatchers, you name it.

This was a sunny cold day & i thought we might get some Sun at Shingle Spit!
On our way down there, i noticed all the fabulous fresh white snow on the Trees on Mount Geoffrey, something fairly rare around here.
It looked spectacular, so i was hoping to be able to get a foto of that from the Spit.

i was really pleased to see a Purple Martin back from migration already!
This has got to be a record.

Not sure i really would have noticed what was going on here, except for wren*s fotos she got at Phipps Point as well, of Gulls harvesting Arbutus berries!
