Unity and I headed to the coast this morning, where we met up with Angie Krysiak for a couple of hours. My time was initially occupied by setting up the Purple Martin gourds in Seabrook and Hampton, while Angie an Unity explored Island Path and Hampton Beach SP. After that, Angie left and Unity and I continued up to Meadow Pond and inland to the Exeter WTP. Among our highlights are the following:
Pair of Peregines over Island Path
Adult Glaucous Gull continues on the Seabrook restroom (didn't see the young bird)
Osprey perched in the marsh off the end of Cross Beach Road
3 Piping Plover and 2 "Ipswich" Savannah Sparrows at Hampton Beach (I missed the latter since I was off raising gourds)
Meadow Pond was hopping, with three Gadwall, 212 GW Teal, and a calling Virginia Rail.
And the usual suspects were at Exeter, with a single obvious Greater Scaup mixed in with the dozens of Lessers and Ring-necks. Also an impressive 19 Buffleheads, all but one in the lower two ponds.
