> The number of Tundra Swans in the flooded field west of Bathurst St, north of the Queensville SR have been building since February 24. I was told there were 350 to 400 yesterday afternoon. The change in the weather means the flooded fields are developing a skin of ice. I estimated there were 200 Tundra Swans this morning. None of the Northern Pintails I saw yesterday were in evidence and I also didn't see any Canada Geese which were also quite numerous yesterday.Coming north from Toronto one could take the 404 to the Queensville S.R. and go west to Bathurst St and then north past Hochreiter Rd. Or take the 400 north to Davis Dr and go east to Yonge St and then north to where Bathurst St crosses it south of Bradford. Turn right on Bathurst and then left at the stop sign and go over the railway tracks to the end of Bathurst St. The swans are along the tree line bordering the Holland River to the west.Kevin Shackleton
