Dylan's post about the Red-breasted Merganser that has shown up for several years in the same spot on Lake Sunapee reminded me I had not checked on the Wilson's Snipe that seems to appear annually in the Salmon Brook wetland just upstream from Improved Machinery Pond off Burke St.
I had looked earlier in the fall, when it usually shows up, but the water was too high--no mudflats.
Today I peeked through the fence surrounding the wetland and quickly located a Snipe! Also, four more Snipe!
Which demonstrates nothing--except it's a good spot to look for Snipe in the fall...
