Sewage Lagoons

Postby Lesser Spot Finder » Fri Jun 10, 2011 3:17 pm

Birders know all the best locations! Thanks to advice from Tim I went to the CFB Suffield Sewage Lagoons last night. Again the usual suspects were seen - plenty of nearctic wildfowl and the odd Killdeer. I suspect that the additional water on the prairie has cleared most birds off the lagoons.

I did find my first lifer in a few days - a Marsh Wren which I did not get superb views of but was in the correct habitat for this species. I'd like a better view though. Luckily I also had cracking views of a breeding plumaged Franklin's Gull which is very similar to Med Gull - hats off to anyone who identifies the former in the UK.

Finally on my return I had a fly past Short-Eared Owl which I managed to get a record shot of.
