Weather Prediction:
Oct 7th - chance of a shower in the morning changing to mainly sunny in the afternoon, W 10km/h in the morning changing to NW 20km/h and gusting to 33km/h in the afternoon around 1:00pm.  (theweathernetwork.com)  OMG, it's our first good bit of wind blowing from the NW!!!  It's a little late in the day but the potential is there for a good movement of birds starting around noon until late in the afternoon.  If I'm feeling up to it, I'll be at the park for sure.

Possibly I'll see you tomorrow,
Walter
