This morning at 9:00am I observed a Buff-breasted Sandpiper on the Beeton Sod Farms with a flock of 66 Black-bellied Plovers.  Also seen at the Zander Specialty sod farm was 1 Black-bellied Plover.  

The sod farms are on the South side of the 9th concession about one
kilometre west off the 15th sideroad.  The field has recently been cleared.  To reach the area go north on
HWY 400.  Take the Bond head cut off west and drive west to the lights in
Bond Head.  Turn north on Hwy 27 and then left at the next lights onto
the Beeton road going west.  In about 5 km take the 15th sideroad north to
the 9th.  

The Zander specialty sod farm is one concession North of this site on the North side of the 9th concession about one
kilometre west off the 15th sideroad. Do not approach from the other end of the sideroad as the
bridge is under construction and the road is blocked.
