Saw 3 different least bitterns this morning at Bronte Marsh ,2 hanging in the marsh below a willow tree and another along the cliff side.
Also found just down a little path to the left of the picnic tables a Screech Owl family. Mother,father and 2 babies! They are hanging near the top of a tree where 2 tree branches from 2 diff trees intersect.
Have photos of the owls and least bitterns at
Bronte Marsh is just north-west of Lakeshore Road W. in Oakville.
There's a small car park on W. River St. Follow the path (under the bridge) on the west side of Bronte Creek for a couple of hundred metres to where the creek opens out into the marsh.
