The two Kittiwakes were still there at 2:00 pm today
They tend to stay at the very edge of the pond farthest away from the
viewing area, usually behind the leftmost small island with cormorants and
terns on it.
Please don't enter the property - the birds can be seen from the gate area.
> Hello Ontbirds people,
> Received several phone calls to the Bird Status Line this morning re: the
> 2 juv. BLACK-LEGGED KITTIWAKES discovered yesterday by Gerard Phillips at
> the Moodie Dr. quarry ponds. Both birds were still present as of at least
> 6:50 AM today (August 6).

> Independent Directions to this Site: From Highway 416 take exit 66
> (Fallowfield Road). If southbound, a 0.4 km off ramp dumps onto
> Fallowfield, where you will turn right or west. If northbound, the 0.4 km
> off ramp brings you to Fallowfield, where you will turn left or west onto
> it and in 0.5 km join the southbound off ramp traffic. Both groups will
