Chambers Lake Big Sit, Hibernia Park, Coatesville, PA
October 9 @ 8:00 am - 8:00 pm EDT
For: Fall migrants
Place: The South side of Chambers Lake, 8:00 a.m.
Leader: Larry Lewis – Early Bird Tours (484-340-7672, firstname.lastname@example.org)
Note: A Big Sit is an all day affair, but everyone is welcome to come and go as they please. It is usually a fun time to see how many birds can be spotted while not moving out of a 15 foot circle. Great fun, with plenty of food and camaraderie, like tailgating.
Directions: From Coatesville, PA (in western Chester County): From the Rt. 30 By-pass north of Coatesville, take Rt. 82 exit north. Turn left at the 4-way stop sign (Rt.340) and go 1.3 miles to Wagontown Rd. Turn right on Wagontown Rd. and continue on this winding hill for 1.5 miles (you will pass the Hibernia Park entrance on your right). Continue up the hill and the lake will become visible on the right. If attending the “Big Sit”, continue a couple of tenths of a mile further along Wagontown Rd. past the lake parking lot and to the western dike of the lake. Carefully pull off the road and park in the grass near the dike. You will see us sitting on the dike near the road.
