Not much to report on the 50dor from Day 16... I went looking for the kelpish thing and didn't see it (Port Stanley) and was pretty much bored out of my mind... I eventually threw an entire garbage bag worth of bread into the harbour (at once) and watched the gulls go crazy... But once it was over (didn't take long) - I was bored again..
I did see some things (Barn Swallow) but not enough.... Not enough...
So how is 50dor looking?
Thursday: - strong SW winds AGAIN! This weather is rarity weather... Not epic rarity weather, but rarity weather indeed... Not sure how much time I'll have to bird, but maybe get somewhere (river? local?)
Friday - north winds caused by high pressure - perfect weather for a vulture fight... And vulture flights (big ones) can bring Swainson's... Instead of going to seacliffe to see one, I'll be intoxicated... Which is why I'm not doing a big year ;)
Saturday - south winds again!? I'll be recovering in order to go out again Saturday night... whoops.. probably won't find much on day 18/19 of 50dor..
Sunday - STRONG south winds again!? wow.. might as well just go birding anywhere.. Lakewatch somewhere, pelee, Niagara river.. check the woods for something funky! Tis the season..
Monday/Tuesday - too far in advance to really tell the weather....
Current sea Ice -- -where's the ice??
Who really knows, but maybe the lack of Ice can bring the James Bay watchers some Short-tailed Shearwaters and Ross's Gulls?!
