Three different Winter Wrens were singing this morning at Branford Supply Ponds all from along the Orange trail that leads off the big parking lot. The first one I heard from across the upper pond. It was in the vicinity of Noble's bench and the sound carried beautifully over the water. When I came around on the trail, there was another one along the stream that feeds into the upper pond and then also one near the big parking lot.
The Supply Pond trails are now open after sustaining severe damage from the August tropical storm (many trees snapped at mid-height and fallen trees everywhere). Kudos to the people that worked so hard to open the trails up. The granite bench honoring Noble Proctor was destroyed as well. I believe there is an effort underway to restore it.
