Palm Warbler at Greenbury Point.

We must be getting close to the end of migration, and I’m complaining less than usual.  I’ve been very conservative about where I’ve been going. It’s all local with the exception of the occasional trip across the bridge.  The best nearby marshes are at CBEC  and  Terrapin. The best nearby lake is  Artemesia, but I haven’t been going that far, as the reports are dismal.

The best birds have been at Greenbury Point and the pond at Jonas Green.

We’ll have swans and ducks soon, and I’ll be adding Thomas Point to the list.

It’s been a couple of weeks since I posted. It was quite slow for a while, but migration  is in full swing now, and I’m actually finding the occasional warbler.

A trip to Bombay Hook with Graeme was a treat a few days ago.

I got to CBEC again, and Terrapin, but  mostly I’ve stuck to Greenbury, Jonas Green and Quiet Waters.
