Subject: [MASSBIRD] Kent Island Bridge, Newbury - Complete
Birders,

Back in early May I mentioned that the bridge leading out to Kent's
Island was closed. Now, there's newly built bridge off Hay Street in
Newbury provides access Kent’s Island Creek Salt Marsh.

This site is an approximately 47 acre salt marsh near the tributaries to
the Little and Parker Rivers. The new bridge is now complete with access
to Kent’s Island. The wider culvert improves tidal flushing of the upper
marsh which will mean more shorebirds, sparrows & wrens...

Good birding,
Sue
