Wychwood Turtles

This sign has been posted on the road by the pond in Wychwood - apparently the pond is now teeming with turtles - snapping and painted as well as supply of goldfish. Even though the water surface is covered with duckweed there were 2 turtles sitting on the log visible in the centre of the right-hand pic. The pond was formed by damming this section of Taddle Creek - which also happens to be the only section of the creek not buried under the streets of Toronto.

I thought it was an expanse of green grass until I read your post. I would never have imagined turtles in Toronto!

Linda - the duckweed is so thick that you can actually see a trail where the resident Mallards have paddled through. Today there were 4 turtles on the log!
