Today 8/24 while leading a snake hike at Sandling Beach, Wake County, we saw three Black Terns from the shoreline past shelter 7 in Ledge Creek arm of lake. Non breeding plumage. Seen from Matt Daws tern overlook (many tern species seen up this arm of lake!). Ledge Rock boat ramp across the way a quicker free way to scan the lake.
A quick stop at Cheek Road bridge tallied four Caspian Tern north of the bridge, in both wake and durham counties, maybe Granville too if you watched long enough...
Oh and we found one southern ringneck snake and one angry black racer. -- Brian Bockhahn <birdranger248...>
