I had the pleasure of doing some work down in Lennox & Addington County this week again and spent some time over on Amherst Island! Wednesday was a very good day, and I tallied 88 species by around 130pm - not too shabby for the fall! Highlights were lots of shorebirds including White-rumped Sandpiper, Black-bellied Plover, American Golden Plover as well as good numbers of warblers and a late Yellow-billed Cuckoo.
I had fun playing around with my camera again. I shot 'in the RAW' for the first time and had fun editing my shots. A Black-throated Blue Warbler was particularly obliging, although it was fairly dark where I was shooting so there was a lot of post-processing necessary to adjust the exposure, which means a bit grainier photos. Below are a few of my favourite shots.
