Hi all,

I spent a couple of hours at Cherry beach (west of the parking lot,
near the Eastern gap towards Toronto Island) on Saturday. There are a
lot of gulls there, including at least two Kumlien's Gulls, 8 Great
Black-backed Gulls, 2500 Ring-billed Gulls, and about 50 Herring
Gulls. There was also a Tundra Swan, a Horned Grebe and the following
ducks. Photos/vidoes at my blog (see link below).

4	American Black Duck	
25	Mallard	
2	Redhead	
100	Lesser/Greater Scaup	
4	White-winged Scoter	
250	Long-tailed Duck	
100	Bufflehead	
200	Common Goldeneye	
10	Common Merganser	
20	Red-breasted Merganser	

Good birding,

Cherry Beach is reached by driving south along Cherry Street until you hit Lake
Ontario. To get to Cherry St, drive south off Lake Shore Blvd. on Carlaw, then
turn west on Commisioners and drive west to Cherry St. (then turn south).
