Hi all,

Barrie Gilbert and I sailed to Main Duck Island (eastern Lake Ontario), out
on the 8th and back on the 9th of June.

Highlights on the way out (8 June) included 12 Brant and 1 male Long-tailed
Duck, both far out in the middle of the lake.

On the island, highlights included a pair of Carolina Wrens carrying food
(near the lighthouse), one singing male Blue-winged Warbler (ne of
lighthouse) and large numbers of Red-breasted (>500) and Common (>150)
mergansers, good numbers of American Woodcock, and one Blackpoll and
Black-throated Green warbler (both likely migrants). The full list is below.

all the best, Paul
