Note: redirected east to Willoughby for a foliage promenade.
This loop will only be possible if lake level rises significantly. Date is highly tentative, dictated by draught, and will be pushed back until it rains. Route is out Dead Creek to Goose Bay, north into Missisquoi Bay, close around Shad and Metcalf Islands (staying inside the border), back upriver to the launch. Last week we watched an extremely rare Hudsonian Godwit feeding at the eastern outlet of the delta, as well as several Bald Eagle, a pair of Pileated Woodpecker and at least two Green Heron flying low overhead (plus all the usual suspects, of course).
