While not rare, it was still magnificent to see thousands of swallows 
swarming over Lake Ontario close to shore near Cliff Lumsden Park. 
 While most were Cliff Swallows, there were many Barn Swallows, some 
Tree Swallows and at least two Chimney Swifts.  In the waters nearby the 
only waterfowl of interest were Red-Breasted Mergansers.

Directions:  Cliff Lumsden Park can be found by exiting the QEW at 
Kipling Avenue and driving south to Lakeshore Blvd.  Drive east on 
Lakeshore and turn south onto 8th Street.  At the foot of 8th street is 
Lumsden Park, which also stretches as far east as 5th Street.  Most of 
the birds could be seen at the east end of the park at 5th Street though 
the swifts were a little further west.
