Spotted Sandpiper at Schoolhouse Pond.

My original thought was to try Wooton this morning, but the car made the turn for Schoolhouse Pond instead. I prefer going there on weekends to avoid the traffic.

It was quite dark and cloudy at first, but I could see there were a few good birds, so I waited a while. I got a few images in the poor light, but it wasn’t long before the sun came out and I got a good look at some decent birds.  I suspect I’ll be going back again soon.

I stopped at Governor Bridge on the way home, but didn’t find much.
