Great Blue Herons have returned to their nests along Hoylake Road! The herons’ nests were spotted by the project biologist working on the School Connector Route, and were not previously identified by the Province.

 As a result the Town is working closely with the Province to ensure a safe distance is kept from the nests. The herons are currently flying to and from their nests, and during this time, work can continue, but once the birds are nesting, work will halt all together. A monitor is currently watching the nests, and work is paused when the birds return. The heron numbers are increasing, so happily it looks like the heron nesting continues undisturbed.

 This portion of the trail will be completed in the Summer once the chicks have left their nests.

 The trail will is able to be used, but the public is advised to keep dogs on leash and not make any loud noises. Signage will be posted to notify of the area affected.
