Best non-raptor sighting was 4 Great Egrets circling low over Kingston Road.

Monarch butterflies again today came through in decent numbers.  My best guess would be somewhere over 600.

A huge number of people at the Watch today, too many to list!  My thanks to everyone.

Tomorrow's SW wind may bring a few birds along the bluffs including Osprey...remember, I said "may".  Tuesday is shaping-up to be pretty good with NW wind between 15 and 25km/h.
