I took today off. My original plan way back was to go to Point Pelee, but wasn't so sure on Sunday due to lack of things to look at. I went anyway.
It was better than Sunday with some gulls/terns/shorebirds to view at the Tip. Two Lesser black-backed Gulls mixed in, but a far cry from the number apparently there last week. Sanderlings were at the Tip.
pick out the Lesser Black-backed!:
Sanderling on the sand
Very few butterflies again, but a few Buckeye were around , lots of Hackberry and one Tawny Emperor.
Several Giant Swallowtails were out.
Only skippers were Silver-spotted and Northern Broken-Dash. I think this is a strongly marked one.
The only good bird on the way home was a Reid Bunting at Pelee Wings (sorry Marianne!).
Stopped at Tilbury S. L. this afternoon. Pretty much what Ken Burrell listed on his blog. Two Stilt Sandpipers were new for the summer.
Checked out Stewart Wetland west of Wallaceburg again this afternoon. This spot is actually really good for shorebirds right now. Better than Blenheim! I will have to keep an eye open here each day on my way to work. Just the usual stuff right now..Solitary Sandpipers, both Yellowlegs, Pectoral, Least....
