This afternoon I had a barn swallow over the south pond on the east side of the canal bank in very active flight.
To get to the Port Weller east pier, take the Niagara Street/Regional Road 48 exit from the QEW in St Catharines, and drive north towards Lake Ontario. Stay on Niagara Street for 5 km, then turn right onto Lakeshore Road. Drive over the Welland Canal and take your second left onto Seaway Haulage Road, approx 500 m after crossing over the canal. Follow Seaway Haulage road north towards the lake. it will turn into Broadway, follow Broadway to the end and park in the little parking lot at the terminus of Broadway at Lake Ontario. Follow the path towards the end of the pier The first pond on the south of the canal bank can be accessed by taking the first east exit from the main path.
