This morning a small flock of 12 Tundra Swans was on the ice just north of the Lakefield Marsh. Among the many Canada Geese along the Otonabee River between Lakefield and Trent University there were at least half a dozen Cackling Geese. Also on the River were four Wood Ducks, a Pied-billed Grebe, Ring-necked Ducks, Hooded and Common Mergansers, Common Goldeneyes and Buffleheads.
