Very interesting Sam, great shots. Looks like it might be an immature, (female?), Merlin or pigeon hawk.

Nice shot of a Mayfly, "spinner" or imago stage, Sam.
I'm not at all certain but it may be hexagenia limbata owing to the large size, can be to 35mms, and the two tails, one of the largest in the mayfly family, hatches Jul/Aug., just a guess I.m afraid.   (reply...)

Thanks, Vernon, for the update. still great to know they are/were still in the area. PS: I just got back from doing the loop. left Southport, Nl., went off the Island through Port-Aux -Basques, travelled the Maritimes, and through Labrador, then came back to the Island to St Barbe, then south. Needed to do that trip. Because of time restraints didn't do much wildlife watching. visited a lot of family in Lab.BUT NEXT TIME........... (reply...)

Sam, The ospreys have been around all spring/summer but not in the nest. They seem to disappear for a few days and then are around for a few days. They we in the nest as normal at theor arrival this past May, but sometime in June something happened. No one seems to know for sure.

Vernon 

P.s. wish is was around....here in Ontario-family time and birding vacation.

I visited that site recently, but didn't see any Ospreys. Could they have nested early?? (reply...)

Thanks all for the responses.  Much appreciated.  I went back to get a taste of them but unfortunately they were dried up.  Guess I'll mark the spot and hopefully I'll get a taste next year. 
Cheers Brian
