August 30,2015 Renfrew County: Lake Dore: Little Gulls

Hi Everyone
Spent the morning birding Lake Dore in Renfrew County. With calm conditions the visibility was great and the bird activity was excellent. Highlights included two Little Gulls, one winter adult/one juvenile and one Lesser Black-backed Gull. Other birds of note included 36 adult Common Loon,  140+ Bonaparte's Gull, 750+ Ring-billed Gull, 50+ Herring Gull, 650+ Double-crested Cormorant, 40+ Common Tern, 1 Horned Grebe, 1 Red-necked Grebe, 1 American Golden-Plover and 1 Whimbrel.
A brief stop at Westmeath Provincial Park along the Ottawa River produced a few birds including 4 Sanderling, 1 Common Goldeneye, and 2 Black Tern.   
Definitely a fun morning of birding!
Good birding

Directions: Lake Dore is located off Hwy 41 near Eganville/Golden Lake. Westmeath Provincial Park access point is at the end of Sand Point Road off CR 12. If you require additional information, please email me privately.
