Between 3:00 and 4:30 this afternoon I birded Rattray Marsh and found seven species of shorebird: Killdeer: 3; Greater Yellowleg: 2; Lesser Yellowlegs: 9; Solitary Sandpiper: 1; Spotted Sandpiper: 1; Pectoral Sandpiper: 3 and Least Sandpiper: 4.  The mudflats are now ideal for shorebirds and more handy for those who live in the greater Oakville/Mississauga/West Toronto area that have the long drive to Oshawa 2nd Marsh to find shorebirds. 


Directions:  the handiest access the marsh at the south end of Bexhill which runs south of Lakeshore Boulevard between Mississauga Road and Erin Mills Parkway.
