Just a heads-up for anyone interested in seeing the Cattle Egret in Gill which continues as of today, Nov 3rd. It's currently spending time with the larger herd of cows behind the Upinngil Farm stand off Main Road, Gill. It was also back on Boyle Road yesterday evening at around 17:30 hours.
A few other birds of note in Gill:
Nov 3rd; 3 Greater Yellowlegs seen from Barton Cove public ramp just off Rt 2.
Nov 2nd; 26 Long-tailed Ducks touched down on Barton Cove rather briefly at 16:45 hours and then headed upriver without settling. Also, a calling Lapland Longspur, my first of the fall, on North Cross Road, Gill at dawn.
