My back and leg had healed enough for me to retrieve the amphibian traps from the stream corridor marsh at Mayslake Forest Preserve.
As I went, I noticed some changes. The shelf of wood that had supported the ill-fated Canada goose nest collapsed.
I also found two new plants. One was abundant enough that I should have seen it before.
There was only one individual of the other plant, so I took photos and a single tiny flower.
There always is something new to be found in preserve monitoring.
