Comments:
Conducted a lakewatch from the cement pier behind the lighthouse. Focus was entirely on waterbirds. Bands of rain throughout watch, with a nasty band approaching at 11:45. Winds began out of the SE, with gusts up to 65 kmh. Wind was straight S, with gusts up to 50 kmh, when I left at noon. Here's where I stood: 43.838770, -77.155363

Small flocks of BOGU passing throughout watch. Groups of 25 birds in some cases. Most heading in a westerly direction. Lovely to watch as they sliced and diced

Solo bird passing by at 0933 hrs, heading west. My first ever sighting of a second winter individual. Concolorous grey upperparts (no stark white leading edge) with a duskiness to the underwing. Very small and compact with a short tail. Wings rounded to their tips but “kinked” in throughout their profile as the bird sliced and diced into the wind, like a BOGU

Surprising number of RTLO seen in flight. Some passing quite close! Close birds were winter adults. I noted the time when each passed; if it’s of interest, I’ll post.

1108 hrs. Flying E, 400 meters from my vantage point. Appears to be a winter adult showing signs of remnant moult. Put out an Ontbirds post in case others were out birding The County.
