A well attended open house at Nicomekl School Weds evening brought a huge sigh of relief to the many who attended. Thankfully plans for a children's playground and walkway into the lagoon have been dropped. That's great news for the birds and birders who visit from around the Lower Mainland. There is talk of an observation tower near the car park overlooking the floodplain retention pond, a good place to see Wilson's Snipe and Virginia Rail. Personally I think that might add to overall birding experience.
I am sure there will be more information forthcoming in the local media. Thanks to everyone who attended tonights meeting.
Good Birding
