The Little Blue Heron was still present this evening at the same location in the containment pond near Harrington.
It moved around and wasn't in view all the time but it did eventually come fairly close to the berm and gave everyone good looks.
Directions: From Hwy 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 Harrington. Just through the community turn right onto 31st Line. Travel exactly 1 km 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.
