Buttertubs Marsh Park

 

It's been awhile since I walked around Buttertubs Marsh Park here in Nanaimo. So yesterday I thought I would go check it out. It was nice and sunny and as soon as I started my walk it started to rain. But it looked like it was going to clear, so I trekked on. Usually there is a lot of birds in the marsh but this time it was very quite. But the bugs were out in full force along the trail, you can see the swarms in some of the images below. I will have to go back in a few weeks and see if there are more birds hanging out in the marsh. Still a nice walk though.
