This is a re-post... original post did not show (perhaps sent from the wrong email address). The tundra swans are possibly in the same area as I have seen them there several years at this time.

Several flocks of tundra swans were seen flying overhead along the shoreline of Crystal Beach Jan 11 2016 . They were moving  in an easterly direction aided by  today’s strong WEST winds. They might have been flying toward the Niagara river where some of us have seen them in winter in the past. Total number would have been over 2 dozen .

Crystal Beach can be reached from Fort Erie by taking HWY 3 westward until you see the sign for Crystal Beach.

here are their directions.

Getting to Crystal Beach from Toronto: Take the QEW toward Niagara Falls. At Niagara Falls continue on the QEW toward Fort Erie/Buffalo. Exit the QEW at Sodom Road. Follow Sodom Road (which becomes Gorham Road, which then becomes Ridgeway Road for approximately 13km/8.1m until you reach Erie Road. Turn Right on Erie Road. Public Beach is located on the left approximately 0.5km/0.3m.
