Common Tern at Terrapin Nature Park.

I started at Sandy Point again, and got a so-so sunrise. There were a few egrets around, but not much else, so I headed to Terrapin, as usual. Things are definitely picking up there, and I expect it will be a hot spot soon. I was pleased to see the Black Crowned Night Heron again.

CBEC was rife with biting insects, and not as many birds as usual, but the tame Fox showed up in the parking lot again.
