Birders, Today at about 12:30 pm therewas a Juv. Hudsonian Godwit on the
beach at Pt. Burwell Prov. Park. There is a very wide beach in the park and
much of the upper sections were flooded today. Other birds on the beach
were 180 Common Terns, about 300 Bonapartes,7 R. Turnstones, 1 Semipalmated
Plover, Caspian Terns and the regular gulls. Before I left the Godwit
which had been sleeping was scared by beachgoers but did land further down
Other interesting migrants were at the Aylmer Sewage Lagoons which are
only at this time minimally good shorebird habitat. Black Terns-4 juv. and
Upland Sandpiper- 4 - in adjacent field
L. Yellowlegs, Least Sand., Solitary,
Directions: Port Burwell is on Lake Erie between LongPoint and Port Bruce.
The Godwit was in the day use area of the park ( a fee required) on the
beach from Parking area #3.
Aylmer Sewage Lagoons; From 401 take #73 or Imperial Road toward Aylmer.
Before you get to Aylmer turn right onto Glencolin Line and the first left
is Rogers Road. Turn left and the lagoons are visible on right.
