Description

New nest scrape with adult pair nearby. These observations were made during the course of my duties as a Parks Canada employee. This islet is a Special Preservation Area in Gulf Islands National Park Reserve, which means that public access is prohibited Please respect closures for Special Preservation Areas, including Sidney Spit Lagoon and park islets. Stay at least 100 metres from islets – they are important and rare habitat for nesting seabirds and marine mammals.
