Hi Everyone
Birded Alfred Sewage Lagoon early morning on May 27,2011. The east cell was low and there were 500+ shorebirds mainly Dunlin and Semipalmated Sandpiper, highlight were 11 Red-necked Phalarope. Also had 70+ Ruddy Duck. At Embrun Sewage Lagoon 1 Whimbrel was observed until an immature Peregrine Falcon flew in and flushed the shorebirds.  
In the afternoon at Lake Dore near Eganville we observed 2 Arctic Tern along with 80+ Common Tern, 1 Black Tern and 3 Bonaparte's Gull. The terns could be viewed from Lake Dore Road.
Good Birding, Bruce

DIRECTIONS: From the town of Alfred go east on Highway 17, then turn south on Peat Moss Road and drive for 2 km. The lagoons are on your left (east side of road). The birds are best observed from the viewing tower. Access to the viewing tower is free and no permit is needed.
