Port Perry Lagoons
Sunday, August 22, 6 PM
(permit required for entrance)

Red-necked Phalarope- 1 (juvenile)

It was in the 4th lagoon from the east side, swimming with a
large flock of Bonaparte's Gulls. Water levels are very high in
all of the lagoons. There were only 6 shorebirds seen, most were
feeding on the floating mats of algae.

 Don't forget your access permit if you go. To obtain a permit, you must go
 in person [no proxies] to the Port Perry Waste Transfer Station, located at
 1623 Reach Road, Port Perry. Go north of town on Hwy 12, to Regional Rd 8
 Reach Road] and turn right [east] to the Transfer Station [on your left].
 Stop at the gatehouse and you can buy your permit from Tuesday to Saturday
 between 8:00 a.m. and  4 p.m. only.

 To reach the lagoons from here, back track to Hwy 12 and go north to the
 next street Concession 8 [don't be confused by the similarity in the
names -
 it is a different road than Regional Road 8] and go east and follow it over
 a bridge and past a chain link fence to the second gate. The lock box to
 enter the lagoons is located at this gate.
