Over at Blenheim, the padlock is now on the gate apparently. No access for a while.
Not much in the way of butterflies this week in this area. I could only find one Peck's Skipper the other day in the skipper category!
This morning as one would expect, there were lots of migrants. Brander Park in Port Lambton had a number of warblers which was nice. Lots of Blackpoll Warblers coming through for example.
I expect this weekend will be pretty good for birding. Cool, but nice weather. Perhaps some rarity is lurking about brought up from this week's southwest winds.
This evening I ventured out to Mitchell's Bay. A storm was a-brewing!
Got a good walk in before it hit. Several warblers (many Blackpoll!) were along the waterfront trail. Also saw a Philadelphia Vireo and a Blue-headed Vireo. A couple of the summering Great Egrets were out and about.
Several Black-crowned Night-Herons came out of the marsh at Angler Line.
The waterfront trail is pretty nice running from Angler Line to Mitchell's Bay. A dock is there where you can get a good view of the lake and marshy area. A nautical theme is near the dock. An upturned lifeboat serves as a shelter.
