BLACKBERRIES just beginning to come. RED and PURPLE FLOWERING RASPBERRIES are still edible. When I first got to the beaver pond, I saw two big BEAVERS and two MALLARDS. From the lower blind I saw two small beavers briefly. At the big pond down by the river, I flushed at least two MALLARDS who flew off toward the river. I saw an animal swimming around but couldn’t get my binoculars on it in time to see what it was. I also spotted eight more MALLARDS at the far end of the pond.
