There is a single Great Egret in the newly constructed cattail marsh at the east end of Lake Victoria in central Stratford. Harald Scholz found it last Thusday and it has been seen daily since then. Today it had the close company of a Great Blue Heron.
The cattail marsh has proved popular with resident and migrant birds and is a good place to look if you happen to be in Stratford.
Directions: From Ontario Street (Hwy 7/8) travel north on Queen Street to the lake. Turn right on Lakeside Drive and park on your right. Walk east to the Festival Bridge and observe the marsh to the east.
