The Fall 2021 Migration Count has commenced and runs from Sep 20th until Nov 15th with observers at the Mount Lorette site daily — including viewing equipment available to the public. If interested in visiting the site, we suggest that you visit after 3pm. We see the majority of the migrating eagles in the later afternoon. This is the 29th consecutive year of vigilant recording.

Description of the Day:

A miserable, blustery day throughout which we experienced rain, hail, snow, and fog. The ridges were nearly constantly totally obscured. With the poor conditions set to continue throughout the day, we returned to the comfort of our car and watched for a further 2 hours to see if conditions would change. When they didn't, we called it a day, though we did drive by the site again 2.5 hours later to no avail.
