Hello Birders, I checked a few spots yesterday at lunch time and dusk. Nice variety (40 species) for a couple of hours effort. Notable were c.100+ COMMON MERGANSER, 7 CANVASBACK. Also 5 WOODCOCK one of which I was able to observe on the ground ³peenting². 2 BARRED OWL. Also several thousand gulls heading to roost (at Hopewell?).
