Three friends and I were very surprised to see a Snow Goose at the Alfred Lagoons this morning.  It was seen (from the viewing platform with scopes) stretching its neck and wings up a few times and moving about slightly in the long grass at the far end of right cell.

Also this morning we saw one Pectoral Sandpiper at the Alfred Lagoons and five Least Sandpipers at the Casselman Lagoons.

Casselman Lagoons:  http://ca.geocities.com/larry.neily@rogers.com/sewage7.htm     From Highway 417 (The Queensway), 52 km east of Ottawa, take the Casselman exit (66) and go NNW toward the town of Casselman. Drive 1.1 km NNW into town on Rue Principale, crossing the railway tracks and the main cross-street (St. Isidore), to turn right or northeast just beyond onto Laurier. Follow Laurier northeast, then north, 1.8 km to Concession 5 Road (or Route 500). Turn right or northeast onto it and the road into the Casselman Sewage Lagoons is on your right almost immediately.
