The cornfield south of Mather’s Corners is again water-filled following the heavy rains of Thursday night. Present around 1130h this morning were a couple of hundred ducks, just over half of which were Mallards, but also present were Northern Pintail (16), Green-winged Teal (28), American Black Duck (10), American Wigeon (2) and Gadwall (2) along with 87 Canada Geese. Fewer ducks on Little Lake (no sign of the scaup, Long-tailed Duck or Redheads), but the Horned Grebe was still present, sleeping in the centre of the lake NW of the cemetery.
