The hot weather also meant that any birding activity would have to be undertaken early in the morning or not at all, mostly it was not at all! Anyway July is usually devoted to my other half unless of course there is a rarity in town and then she comes along and goes biking while I concentrate on the birding. Last time I found the bird in ten minutes and she was gone for three hours!
It was also time to go BC camping and so I took the Nikon P900 in case I saw anything interesting. Here are some results.

Finally I had some time to go birding after the Labour Day weekend. I chose the ferry terminal thinking I might find the Great Egret, this Whimbrel was a nice surprise. The Egret was a no show.
