Leader: Ken Allison
Meet: Entrance to the Mud Lake hiking trail along Cassels Street, near the water treatment plant, north of Britannia Park. Parking is along Cassels Street on either side. Carpooling is encouraged. The OC Transpo bus #16 provides service into Britannia.

The Britannia Conservation Area is an excellent migrant trap in both spring and fall. This trip will concentrate on later migrants, especially waterfowl on Mud Lake and the Ottawa River. Depending on where birds have been reported, we might move west up the river to Andrew Haydon Park or Shirley’s Bay. Dress for the weather and remember it is always colder along the water. Bring binoculars and a scope if you have one. Waterproof footwear would be a good idea.
