I went back to Blackwater again this morning, and didn’t do as well. The flies are getting thick, but not as thick as they were at CBEC a few days ago. I’ve been told they’re even worse at Bombay Hook, so I’m going to pass on there for a while. They get so thick you’re constantly swatting at them, even though the insect repellent keeps them from biting.
The interesting thing today was the eagles eating carrion in the wheat fields. I saw three, accompanied by vultures, feasting on what appeared to be dead deer, on the way home.
