From an email by Kelly to the Birding Group on November 23.
Today the last sample was taken from Courtenay Airpark Lagoon. All 17 weekly samples were shipped today to Guelph University for analysis.
The sampling team consisted of myself, Shirley C., Rick H., Gael A., Linda G. and Gordon S.. Well done team!
Some photos are attached. The last photo shows the filter disks. [Click a photo to enlarge it.]
For those hearing this for the first time, the samples are to assist Bettina Thalinger (University of Guelph) with her research for a method to identify bird species at remote sites.
