Hi All,

I was able to head to Col Sam Smith Park at lunchtime today and while 
standing out at the south east tip (where the lighthouse used to be), I saw 
2 COMMON LOONS, one was only 20m off shore the other was about 150m away, to 
the east.  Haven't seen any reports of these lately and thought the winter 
listers may have missed them in December?  Also, just offshore was a 
WHITE-WINGED SCOTER.  I did not find the Snowy Owl but did not walk all the 
way out to the western end of the park.

Good Birding,

Frank Pinilla
