Diving Ducks, Loons & Others – Ottawa West with Tony & Nina

Tuesday Nov 12

It was just Tony, Nina, Karen & me today.  A freezing very windy day, the kind of cold that goes right through you.  We started at Britannia Point, then went to Andrew Haydon.   The conditions on the river were terrible, and we did not stay long.  We went to Timmy's and got a hot beverage.  Then we tried Shirley's Bay,  but drew a blank.  Hilda was little better.  We went out to Constance Creek and picked up a few hawks and ducks.  We cruised the back roads near Richmond, and got a few Snow Geese.  We stopped at Burnside briefly, then went around to the dump to finish with a Herring Gull.
