Jean Iron, Ron Pittiway and myself birded the lagoons today in both the
morning and evening (along with a handfull of other observers throughout the
day), and did not see the Little Stint.
Migrant Juvenile Shorebirds today included Least Sandpiper(2) , Semipalmated
Sandpiper(1), Lesser Yellowlegs(1) and Greater Yellowlegs(1). 13 shorebird
species here in 2 days, and habitat should get better if it ever stops
raining. 4-5 Sora and 1 Virginia Rail were noted today as well.
When visiting the lagoons, please park AWAY from the gates (either side of
the road), to allow the large tanker trucks easy passage.
Directions to Townsend's sewage lagoon - Take 403 Hamilton exiting at 6
south. Follow 6 around Caledonia, through Hagersville turning right at
Nanticoke Creek Parkway. Follow the Parkway into Townsend and turn left
onto Keith Richardson's Parkway. Turn right at Concession 14 Townsend
Rd and the lagoons are on the right between the first and second farms
on the right hand side.
