Not having been there in several days I headed out to Reifel this afternoon. It was fairly quiet for a Sunday as far as people go. It was also relatively quiet on the birding front as well. New arrivals are still showing up,
… but the Gadwall due tend to be a little later with their broods.
On the shore bird front there were a number of Yellowlegs present.
Today most of those present,
… were Lesser Yellowlegs.
One bird I would not expect to find on the inner ponds,
… was this Bonaparte’s Gull.
Around here you would normally find them in open water and along the shore line.
There were four Red-necked Phalaropes,
… but they were not coming very close to the dyke.
After Reifel I headed down to Boundary Bay Regional Park in Tsawwassen for the high tide. A Pacific Golden Plover had been seen there earlier in the week.
It had been seen frequenting the area with some Semipalmated Plovers,
… and Killdeer. While I managed some shots of the Semipalmated Plovers and Killdeer, there was no sign of the Golden Plover.
