The Tuesday bird walk went to Rathtrevor Provincal Park in Parksville. The morning was cloudy with fog over the calm water on the Strait Of Georgia. The highlights included seeing a large mixed flock of Black-bellied Plovers, Black Turnstones and Dunlin on a gravel bar just off shore. We spotted one Common Murre further offshore. Five Trumpeter Swans flew low over the water. The find of the morning was the sighting of a Townsend's Solitaire high up in a conifer tree.
