Alaska Holiday - Day 15, heading home

Friday morning and another prompt start, to make sure we got to the airport in good time for our 23-hour journey home.

We were sufficiently early to stop off at Potter Marsh, south of Anchorage, spotting amongst others, a Tree Swallow in drab plumage:

A Wilson's Snipe perched on an exposed tree stump:

Lesser Yellowlegs wading around the marsh:

Black-capped Chickadees fed and moved around the trees around the Boardwalk:

As did Lincoln's Sparrow:

Leaving Potter Marsh we still had time to stop at Westchester Lagoon where the mood had turned to offspring:

We really enjoyed our trip to the US, and every bit of it too. All in all a fantastic holiday... now to pay for it!
