East winds today!? This is another auto post, so hopefully the forecast holds and I'm currently at Van Wagner's Beach watching Kittiwakes and other goodies...

Maybe even dozens and dozens of adult Gannets?!!? (Or maybe just the one adult Gannet that has potentially been on the lake for weeks?)... I don't know about you, but it has been 4-5 years since I've seen a Gannet in Ontario.............

My usual weather sources for east winds.. Check them and come to the lake!

The Grimsby Buoy:


The Lift Bridge:


Marine Forecast:




I like LOOFS quite a bit for these short-term forecasts... Currently calling for 30-ish kmh E winds... Strong enough for me, considering how much we've been lacking good E winds in 2012.....


Maybe this is what we'll be looking for?! --- Recently from Derby Hill -

Adult Pomarine?! Long-tailed?! Franklin's Gull!?


Different day, different photos - Long-tailed?! Franklins!? Record shot of the adult Gannet!?
