Great picture, you can really see him kicking hard to get airborne. I was surprised to see so many (hundreds) of canadian geese near the university last September.

HOw many ex-forces

Biggles - what unit did you serve with?

I spent 6 months in Med Hat with the Royal Engineers (96)

1 summer tour filled with Mozzies and long drives followed a few months later by a v-cold winter looking for the lone tree in which to shelter under.

Were right in the middle of North Americas Largest Canda & Snow goose flyway. Do you like goose hunting? The posession limit in Manitoba for canada geese is 15 (5 per day) and for snow geese it's 80 (20 per day).

These are some more pictures taken on or near Elk Island along the Traverse Bay area of Lake Winnipeg. Here are a couple interesting facts about this lake;

Lake Winnipeg is about 436 Km long by up to 111 Km wide & has about 1,750 km of shoreline (longer than Irelands' coastline). Next to the Hudson Bay drainage basin (which Lake Winnipeg is a part of), the Lake Winnipeg drainage basin is Canada's 2nd largest, draining over 1,000,000 km2 of surface area. One of it's beaches (Grand Beach) is ranked by Playboy Magazine (among others) as one of the top 10 beaches in North America.

Rob,

Sorry for the late reply, I've only just seen your post. I served with RMP. Spent 6 weeks in Med hat working with the local Police. Only got on the Prairie once when the Artillery tried to fire two shells at once from a Self Propelled Gun. Luckily there were no injuries but they were all deaf as a post.

Squaddies kept us busy whilst on R and R.

Regards Nick R.

Hmmm. I don't think I would go round winding up Prairie Tuber myself, (on the Whaling or is it wailing thread).
