Lagoon Rd. is a town road, and open to the public.  The landowner has
posted both sides of the road, but has no right to call the police for
people using the road.  I might go chat with the police on Monday.

> Good afternoon, Today when leaving Lagoon Road in Hinesburg (after seeing a Kestrel and Rough-legged Hawk), I was stopped by the police. It seems the neighbors called the police when they saw a car drive down Lagoon Road. It was the folks that recently bought the property surrounding the treatment plant. I assured the officer that it is a popular birding spot, especially in the spring and I was just looking for ducks in open water. I mentioned birders have been given permission to bird there, and have been doing so for many years. Of course when I looked for the business card given to me by the manager of the facility, I could not find it, but I remembered his name and after it was checked (as well as my license) I was free to leave. Hopefully it will not be an issue for anyone else and we will be able to continue to enjoy birds there.
