Fwd: BBC Thursday Walk

9/9 walk
Subject: BBC Thursday Walk

Hi Peter,

We had a good walk today. Although it was a bit hot there was a breeze and quite a few birds including lots of flycatchers (I wonder why so many this year...)

All in all we had 15 species of warblers including an early Orange-crowned (in vale), Prairie (Peninsula), Wilson's and a late Louisiana Waterthrush along the Binnen Stream.

As for flycatchers we had a Traill's type (not calling at all), 2 and maybe 3 Yellow-bellied Flycatchers and a brief but very clear view of an Acadian. We also ran into the Olive-sided that has been seen in the Breeze Hill area. We saw it from the pink beach and then later from the Lullwater.
