Since Greg mentioned trying for the Harlequin; I just wanted to let you
know my experience today, Tuesday.
I checked Charlotte Town and Shelburne Beaches, Shelburne boat access and
Shelburne Point today in the late morning, probably being at the Point
around 11:30-11:45 am.
At these sites in total I did see Bufflehead, Common Goldeneye, Common
Loon, Mallard, Black Duck, Red-breasted and Common Merganser and Horned
Grebes, plus the usual 3 gulls.
At the Point there was a mixed feeding group fairly close to the private
beach there, including Goldeneye (as Pipit saw), but I didn't see the
Harlequin with them or otherwise within bino range. (of course not to say
it isn't still out there somewhere waiting to reappear when I am not there)
(Also, didn't see any sandpipers anywhere.)
A bit nippier today (low 30's and some northerly wind) than it has been by
the Lake, but still nicer than it could be at this time of year!
