THE GOOD NEWS
The Tundra Swans have started to arrive. Within a couple of weeks – with luck – there should be many thousands of them and lots of other migrating waterfowl.
We will be having the annual information day/demonstration on Sunday, April 6 from 11am to 1pm.
NextTERROR (NextEra Energy) plans to put a wind turbine in the bog, which will impede the migration of the swans.
Greenway Road at the Thedford Bog—we need support to provide information to the public who are coming to see the Tundra Swans at their stopover location. NextTerror plans to put a turbine in the bog, and many more all around the area, which will impede the migration of the swans.
Greenway Road runs south from Hwy21/ Lakeshore Rd, just east of the Lambton Heritage Museum MAP
PLEASE JOIN US!
Please plan to attend this event beginning at 11am. Bring signs and print outs. We plan to let the public know that the turbines will inhibit the migration of the swans to this area.
PLEASE PASS THIS ON… AND PLEASE COME – THE SWANS NEED YOUR SUPPORT.
At the Bornish ERT appeal, NexTERROR’s ‘kept’ bird ‘expert’ from New England said that the turbines weren’t a danger to the swans because they avoid them.
While it may be true that swans are seldom killed by turbines, this neatly avoids the fact that they avoid them so completely that they probably won’t land at the bog once the turbines are in place.
Of course, the swans are only part of the wildfowl that stop at the bog and we don’t know if the other species will stay away or be cut down by the NexTERROR bird blenders.
One concern, then, is whether there is any alternative site where they can land, feed, and rest on their journey north.

We will have a petition and information handouts.
