Almost had all the alliteration!

A loon in warmer times. (Concord Monitor – Elodie Reed)

Check out this video posted by the Upper Valley Land Trust, showing land stewards breaking up the ice for a loon stuck in a small patch of open water on Pout Pond in Lyme. According to the trust, loons need about 200 yards of open water to take off, so breaking up the ice was essentially like building the loon a little runway.

As the trust says, “here’s hoping the loon takes advantage of their hard work!”
