While cutting my lawn this evening I found a large Blanding’s Turtle walking across the lawn to get to my neighbours on Hazel Crescent (off Campbelltown Road) OSM Twp.  Got some nice pictures.  Huge shell at almost 11” long.

It was a beautiful specimen! Never seen one around my place before, but a pleasant surprise.
