Osprey at Quiet Waters.

A beautiful day, with good light and good birds.

I started at Sandy Point, which was so foggy that I didn’t stay long.

Possum Point was next, and it was much better. The fog had almost cleared, and there were more birds than usual, including some Red Breasted Mergansers, who have been in short supply this year.

Jonas Green Park was deserted. Quiet Waters had a little activity and may get better soon.
