More Laurel Creek birds

Lots of waterfowl still at Laurel Creek - but nothing unexpected today. The best bird was a pair of Dunlin that flew around for the first five minutes and decided to land on the far end of the 'lake'.
An hour later I saw them fly back towards me and continue on towards the North East...

Still no Cackling Goose despite the hundreds of Canada Geese:

A good comparison of the two Yellowleg species:

The lesser of the two was injured:

A Northern Lapwing in Newfoundland today is hopefully a vanguard of many more euro-vagrants to show up in the near future ;)
