This morning around 8:45 a.m. two juvenile Long-tailed Jaegers flew by the
Lakeland Tower approximately 1 km out spotted by Brandon Holden.  About 9:45
a.m. Rob Dobos spotted a juv.  Sabine's Gull which flew from east to west at
not too far a distance out giving decent looks and at 11:45 a.m. just before
I left another juv. Sabine's Gull was seen at a great distance.  Conditions
are favourable today, thought there might be a bit more action this morning
but typically afternoons are better for lighting as well as birds being
blown down the lake.  Patience and luck!
