Mild weather, 52F  with partly sunny skies  Glencoe Swale this afternoon. Water fowl included usual Mallard ducks. Joining them were Gadwall pairs and a hungry Great Egret. View from land bridge over the Swale at NE Shannon Street.

Further north, near Glencoe High School, a Great Blue Heron hunkered into the Swale grass to preen and rest.
