There's a large flock of Bonaparte's gulls at the 
Wiarton sewage lagoons in various stages of moult 
including one adult in full breeding plumage.  
Also mallards, Wood Duck, Shoveller, Blue-wing 
Teal, juvenile Merganser and a juvenile Pied-
billed Grebe doing its very cool sinking routine.

The lagoons behind the Independent Store in Port 
Elgin had Semi-palmated and Least Sandpipers, 
Semi-palmated Plover, Killdeer, Spotted 
Sandpiper, Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs.  

The large flocks of swallows observed over the 
past few weeks were noticibly absent today.
