A Sea of Snow Geese

I crossed the wooden single lane bridge to Westham Island from Ladner heading to Reifel Bird Sanctuary.

The sight of a thousand snow geese nestled in a farmer’s field, had me pulling over to the side of the road. They had journeyed all the way from Siberia, and the noise was deafening.

On my return trip, I pulled off the road again when the huge flock rose into the air, the sky amass of birds, to settle a hundred metres further afield.
