The Cattle Egret was seen again today, October 7, about 2.30-3.30 pm in the
backyard of #545 Route 500, actively feeding as well as resting and flying.
It was seen from the south bank of the sewage lagoon. Therefore there is no
need to enter the property.

Directions (from Chris Lewis's message):
DIRECTIONS: (*NOTE - THESE SEWAGE LAGOONS ARE DESIGNATED AS PRIVATE
PROPERTY, SO IF YOU CHOOSE TO VISIT EITHER LOCATION, PLEASE BE DISCREET AND
RECOGNIZE THAT THESE ARE MUNICIPAL FACILITIES.
CASSELMAN - Take Hwy 417 east from Ottawa to exit 66 (watch out for
construction and some tricky lane closures from the Embrun though the
Casselman exits!) At exit 66 turn left (north) and proceed past the Tim
Horton's and the RR tracks. Take Laurier St. (the 2nd right after the RR
tracks) and follow it until you reach Rte 500. Turn right onto Rte. 500. The
laneway to the lagoons comes up immediately on your right. The property of
Marc Denis (the owner of the farm on which the egret has been enjoying its
sojourn) is at #545 Rte 500. As previously mentioned, there is no need to
enter the property to see the bird, but Mr. Denis is birder-friendly and if
you check with him at his home he is evidently happy to let people onto his
property until Sat. Oct. 7th).
