Ilya Povaylaev and I have the Whimbrel about 500 m from the taxi pullout towards the base of the ferry jetty on the north side.

Cheers,
Mel

The Whimbrel we saw today in Tsawwassen was fairly close to the base of the jetty and we only viewed it from the car. It was feeding near a couple of Black Oystercatchers.
