4 Arctic Terns, Britannia Point, Ottawa.  The birds were perching on the rocks below the rapids and flying up and down the river.

Observed at 1.30pm from the Water Filtration Plant/Britannia Point.  Also, 1 Common Tern (probably 2nd Summer?) and 6 Black Terns.  

Note: A scope is 
required and it is 'Open Ottawa Day', so there are a couple of Water Treatment workers in yellow jackets marshalling traffic to turn right at the fork in the road.  You need to slow down and indicate that you want to go straight on to the end of Cassels Road (see directions below).
