the shelter building is probably at the intersection where 330 Ave used to be. the north border of the impoundment is 260th St and the south border is 240th St.  the west border is the county line with Traverse Co and is 340 Ave. 

today because of the saturated roads I took Grant County 1 west to Grant County 42 or 300th Ave north to 260th St. it is a large campus.

the Red Knot that is being seen is actually red - not in winter coat - and was just where John Richardson found it 24 hours ago in the area looking south from 260th St just east of the shelter building at 330th Ave. because of its color and the bright sunshine this morning and calm water, the bird and its reflection were easy to find.

I hope this helps? if not reply and I'll try again.
