Date: 11/02/2022

Number: 12

At the Tip at Point Pelee National Park 10:20-11:23am 12°c on arrival & 14° at departure. Felt warmer with full sun. Light nylon jacket was too warm. Very light west wind at 2-7kmh up to 5-7kmh. Foggy in distance.
Daytime high 16°c. Overnight low 9c.

Met up with friend Laura who had already seen monarchs flying south on both sides of the Tip. Earlier reported by phone that Tip was 9°c while at my home about 10kms north from Tip it was foggy & 6°.
Together at Tip We observed monarchs flying south low & high few feet above the ground up to 15-20' up. A few headed out over the lake & gained altitude but turned back to return to the Tip. Wind was so very light so possibly not leaving due to fog.
Many stopped to puddle on damp sand.
On west path did observe 2 at same time. Observed one stop to nectar on asters.....not so plentiful any longer. There was also knapweed still in bloom.

All appeared pristine.

Observations by eye, binoculars & camera.

Mild fall/November with 10 day forecast of highs at 15-19c. Overnight lows 8-13°
