Hi, I am planning a holiday in Nova Scotia in June. Any suggestions on good birding locations?

Here's a guide to birding sites in NS...

http://museum.gov.ns.ca/mnh/nature/nsbirds/b_sites.htm

June is a bit between seasons- in late May still quite lot of warblers going through northbound (that's when I was there a few years ago) and by late July immense numbers of Semi-Ps at Evangeline Beach and six-figure concentrations Red-necked Phalaropes offshore.

If you are also into cetaceans, try trip from Brier Island out into the Bay of Fundy- best place in the world for ultra-rare Northern Right Whale plus should be Humpbacks and Fins. I guess it is a bit early in the summer, but hopefully should be some by then. Some Fins are certianly back by late May.

Many thanks. The timing is a bit unfortunate but our trip is dictated by a wedding so we are stuck with June (good for brides if not for birders!)
