In speaking with a park official a moment ago, I was told that the entire park is closed, with entry past the entrance gate limited those who reside in the residential area and perhaps also to those camping in the park.  Park can be reached at 613-475-4324. 

The amount of flooding has increased and on Saturday, the area of park road before reaching the park gate was covered with a large pond of water and east roadside ditches overflowing with water. Local home and cottage sandbagging continues.

This is not about a sighting but an FYI....Was doing some wet birding at Presqu'ile this morning but was asked politely by park staff to leave the Lighthouse loop area.  The wet spring is causing erosion so they have closed the lighthouse loop.Anyone that is considering going birding there may want to call ahead to find out if any of the park can be accessed.  As as all the beaches and the marsh boardwalk entrances are gated as well, and it looks like it will be raining most of the day.Steve C.
