The Sechelt Marsh is a great place to stretch your legs with its winding trail around a small pond. The pond is fed by both fresh and tidal water, offering a rich habitat, and an abundance of ducks, mostly Mallards together with other common species.
There is a small island in the middle of the pond offering protection to new arrivals, and many rarer ducks have appeared including this Canvasback.
I always enjoy making several loops around the Marsh, both for the exercise as well as the opportunity to see something I may have missed.
Sechelt Marsh is located north of the town centre on Wharf Road, at Porpoise Bay. More information about birding on the Sunshine Coast can be found at http://www.sunshinecoastnature.com/
