Knott's Island Causeway

Herons on the causeway to Knott's Island
A trip to Knott's Island by car from Currituck requires one to travel into Virginia to a point north of the convergence of waters along the Virginia/North Carolina state line and then travel south again to enter North Carolina. The 'island' is actually a peninsula, but it has a feel of an island with a nearby causeway and plenty of marshland, even a refuge (Mackay Island). We saw a variety of waterfowl, herons and even ibis! The time of day wasn't right for much photo-taking but I managed a few shots on my trip earlier this week. Here a couple of blue herons follow some ducks away from the causeway.
