We went looking for Brant this day last year, and obviously, we found them. At Qualicum Beach there is a viewing platform that has a sign on that says it is a Brant viewing site - we never actually saw any Brant from that spot. We found that to find the Brant, we had to find the beach, easier said than done as most of the beaches are lined with houses, but if you just sort of point your vehicle towards the water and start driving along streets, you find that there are areas that have beach access and spots for a car or two to park, so this is what we did. It isn't very comfortable walking on beaches that are in essense someones front yard, but beaches do belong to everyone.
The above picture shows a flock of Brant in flight.
