The Tuesday bird walk went to the Little Qualicum River Estuary in Qualicum Beach. The morning was clear and sunny with a strong wind off the Strait of Georgia. The surf was up and pounding into the shore. The highlights included seeing Black-bellied Plovers, Black Oystercatchers, Sanderlings and a small flock of Dunlin near the shore at the viewing platform. Throughout the morning, further offshore, thousands of Common Murre were heading up the Strait. We counted one hundred and thirty Trumpeter Swans at the mouth of the Little Qualicum River. A large raft of Greater Scaup were not far from shore.
