Had a very nice morning birding Bolton Flats south of Rt. 117. The highlight was two Sandhill Cranes. The birds were in the first cornfield you come to when you hike in from the Rt. 110 entrance. This entrance is the road going to the north immediately to the left of the model airplane runway. There is also a Cumberland Farms store about half a mile to the west of this entrance on Rt. 110 as a reference point. You will need hip waders to get through a flooded area before the cornfield. The birds flew to the southeast. The entrance to the south part of Bolton Flats that is on Rt 117 has very deep water that was higher than my hip waders.
