Starling at Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center.

Sunrise was a little better than average at Sandy Point. The fishermen are starting to show up, so I may have to share my best spots.

I decided to try the Eastern Shore again, and it may not have been my best idea. Terrapin was very slow, and the birds at CBEC are still very elusive.

Someone, likely vandals, burned down the South Blind at Terrapin, taking away a very good site.Sandy Point 212
