Hello All,

The band tailed pigeon arrived at the feeder at 120 Lynngate Place at 10:10
this morning. About fifty birders were huddled in the cold waiting anxiously
for its arrival.

London's weather has taken a turn into winter. We had one or two centimeters
of snow overnight and there are strong winds with a snow squall warning. No
snow has fallen yet today and local roads are passable. The temp is -1 and
expected to go up to +2 this afternoon.You might want to check highway
conditions in your area before you set out.

We hope birders will continue to respect the privacy and property of the
neighbours in this quiet neighbourhood.

Good Luck!! Directions follow.

Directions to access the area...

If from Toronto...come west on 401, and take the 402 towards Sarnia, exiting
very soon at the Wonderland exit (100) to London, and head north. About
3-4km north on Wonderland is the Westmount Mall, a large sprawling mall on
the west side of the road. Keep going north just past the mall to a
streetlight indicating Village Green Avenue(one light before Commissioners
Road). Turn left, to the west and proceed for about 4 streets, some from
left, some from right, till you get to Lynngate Place. Do not park on this
quiet street. Park on the north(right) side of Village Green. Walk up
Lynngate Place to number 120. Go to the RIGHT side of the house, and walk up
the driveway of the nextdoor neighbour's house, along the stone path to the
large patio, at the back of that house. STAY OFF wet grass.
