We visited Quebec and New Brunswick, driving and camping. Overnight stops in Ste Jacques, Saint John, The Fundy National Park, Hopewell Rocks, Bouctouche, then over the border to Grand Métis (motel), three nights at Les Bergernons at one of the best placed campsites either of us have ever visited and finally three nights in Quebec city at a hotel I won't recommend. As we landed in Heathrow on the way home we followed this with three nights in London where we met the boys, mother and John, but that's another story.

The birdlist has 115 spp.

Mammals (and eventually butterflies) below. We'll put some pickies up in due course (always promising that), but none of our squirrels quite match http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/blog/2009/aug/13/squirrel-canada-holiday-snap
