Gabriel Dumont Park

At the end of June I lead a group of birders and local nature enthusiasts around Gabriel Dumont Park which is situated within the city and borders part of the river.
It is a favorite park of mine and is only 20 minutes from my house.

Here are some photos from the day and some that were taken the following morning when I returned there for an early morning walk.
