Quick walk around the Lake this windy evening. Saw the goose. Shortly after I arrived I saw a *suspected* American Bittern flying in to land on Duck Island. The bird flew right through the sun, which obviously didn't make for a great view, and I was unable to relocate it from a more sensible angle. Something to look out for.
