An American Avocet has spent the day at Blenheim Sewage Lagoon.  It was 
first found by Steve Charbonneau early this morning.  I saw it around noon, 
and it is still present this evening according to Chris Law.
It is located in the sprinkler cells.  A rather skittish bird, so approach 
with caution!
Photos will be on my blog soon.

Dozens of ducks, mostly Mallard were present today, but a few American 
Wigeon were also with them.  The usual Ruddy Ducks are in the ponds too.

Lagoon Directions:  Exit 401 at #90 (Communications Rd.) and head into
Blenheim.  At the main stoplight turn right (west) onto Rd. 3.  Travel about
1.5 km and turn right (north) onto Lagoon Rd. at the carwash, and continue
north about 1 km to gate.  You must have an annual permit to enter.
Available at the Municipal Service Centre, 35 Talbot St. in Blenheim,
during  business hours, fax (519) 676-0244.
