Hi All

Despite reports that the cormorant had flown away earlier this afternoon,
the NEOTROPIC CORMORANT continues to be seen in Wheatley Harbour.  It was
last reported, swimming and fishing with the Double-crested Cormorants also
present around 3:30 pm.  Birders were able to get good looks from the east
side of the harbour, as well as the west side....remember not access to the
piers as local fishermen need to be able to get to and from their boats.
The Piping Plover reported earlier was seen flying away from the beach on
the east side of the Harbour, south towards Point Pelee and we have
received no further reports.

If you are coming in from the 401, exit at Queen's Line and follow Cty Rd 2
west to Tilbury (you will turn right after you come off the highway).
Proceed to the first set of lights in Tilbury - turn left (south).  This is
County Rd 1 - follow this road through Tilbury and the town of Wheatley and
it will take you to the east side of Wheatley Harbour.

Good luck and good birding!
