I decided to try for the 2 "good gulls" reported at Adam Beck early
yesterday, but could find neither from 11:15am to 12:15pm - I only saw 4/5
Iceland here(3 in scope at once). At the Queenston sand docks I had seen 2
adult Little gulls with large #'s of Bonapartes.
On my way from Oakville, I stopped at Jordan Stn. and the 2 King Eiders
were easily spotted - the immature male never strayed from the female for
5/10 mins. that I watched.
Not much else of interest until Chippewa, when a Peregrine soared and
then stooped - I did not witness if it was successful. Carried on to Ft.
Erie and saw 40+ Tundra Swans around Sideroad 6/7 - a few Canvasback and
Redhead, 1 Ruddy and all 3 Mergansers.
Unfortunately nothing to add to either list, but a pleasant day along
the lakeshore and up the river to the other lake. Cheers!
