Point Pelee National Park at the Tip 2-4pm
Just a photo of the Tip- no monarch.
21°c & was mostly sunny but now cloud cover. 19° upon leaving Park. SE wind @ 13/17kmh.
Rain expected overnight with daytime temps now dropping to high of around 13°c & less. A couple 15° days seen in next 10 days.
Shuttle driver observed about 9 monarchs flying south over Tip road & around tip shuttle stop.
I went into park & searched Tip area. Did not locate any clusters. Around 4 pm did observe one monarch arrive high from the west about 60' up & fly to tall Hackberry tree at Tip interior. Watched as it went from branch tip to branch tip in search of other monarchs then disappeared on east side of tree. Checked really well as I already had but no clusters seen.
