Thanks, Vernon, for the update. still great to know they are/were still in the area. PS: I just got back from doing the loop. left Southport, Nl., went off the Island through Port-Aux -Basques, travelled the Maritimes, and through Labrador, then came back to the Island to St Barbe, then south. Needed to do that trip. Because of time restraints didn't do much wildlife watching. visited a lot of family in Lab.BUT NEXT TIME........... (reply...)

Sam, The ospreys have been around all spring/summer but not in the nest. They seem to disappear for a few days and then are around for a few days. They we in the nest as normal at theor arrival this past May, but sometime in June something happened. No one seems to know for sure.

Vernon 

P.s. wish is was around....here in Ontario-family time and birding vacation.

I visited that site recently, but didn't see any Ospreys. Could they have nested early?? (reply...)

Thanks all for the responses.  Much appreciated.  I went back to get a taste of them but unfortunately they were dried up.  Guess I'll mark the spot and hopefully I'll get a taste next year. 
Cheers Brian

Due to the fact that the lichen is growing on the ground, I would think that it is likely a species of Peltigera.

Hello. I just joined the NL nature site this morning. I was doing some browsing and came across this. The berry in the picture is in fact Rubus pubescens, or the plumboy as it is sometimes known locally. I do a lot of fieldwork thoughout NL and come across it all the time. Tasty little berry!

thanks, Lessa!!! I am hoping to get out in one of my boats soon and spend a full day watching wildlife. Unfortunately most of my pics on the ocean are taken while working and/or getting to another location. (reply...)

I too would appreciate some books on insects and fresh water life here. It seems the only interest is about the fish(and how to cook them)lol. (reply...)
