There is currently an immature Little Blue Heron at Wildwood Lake. Norm Holden found the bird yesterday and called me last evening.
Directions: From hyw. 401 turn north on Oxford County Rd. # 6 towards Stratford. About halfway between Embro and Stratford, turn West onto Oxford Rd 28. You will then pass through the small community of Herrington. Just through the community turn right onto rd. 3.1 Travel exactly 1 kl north. On the east side of the road there is a berm dividing the lake from a containment pond. The Little Blue Heron is actively feeding in the containment pond along with Great Egrets, shorebirds and other waterfowl. A scope would come in handy as it is fairly distant at times.
Caution; There are police patrolling this area looking for speeders.
