Have just arrived home from seeing the Curlew Sandpiper still actively 
feeding till near dark. The general concencous amongst myself and other 
birders there,  is that it is a female type bird, or maybe a young bird, 
not in High Breeding Plumage, for those trying to re-locate it tomorrow. 
At times when it flew and relocated, it took time to find it again, 
amongst the many Dunlin present. A great find by James.

Directions to Townsend: (From Hamilton)

For Townsend Sewage Lagoons, turn  right from Hwy 6 to #69 to Townsend. 
Turn left on Keith Richardson Parkway. Go to concession 14, turn right 
and go about 750 m. Lagoons are on your right.

Good luck and hopefully the bird is still there tomorrow!

Dave Don.
