Britannia Conservation Area

Wednesday, October 3: A morning spent strolling Britannia C.A. and the adjacent shoreline of the Ottawa River in search of mid-fall migrants including geese, gulls, diving ducks, Common Loons, thrushes, sparrows, late-season warblers and more. If time is pending, we may visit Andrew Haydon Park or Moodie Quarry Pond, especially if reports recent from these locations are promising.

Outing notes: Please be sure to pack snacks, a warm beverage of your choice, some liquids, electrolyte mix, sunscreen, windbreaker, comfortable clothing, comfortable hiking shoes, and so on. It’s a good idea to pack light gloves, a scarf and a toque at this time of year, as well, as it’s often quite blustery.
