We’re getting some good migrants almost every day. I’m hearing about more than I see, but I’m doing OK, thank you.
Graeme and I went to Huntley Meadows overnight, and it’s a great place. A boardwalk through the marsh puts many good birds right in front of you. A few reptiles appeared as well.
Greenbury Point is hosting some good migrants, and I’ll be posting some before too long. I thought the Trumpeter Swans had left, but I relocated them this morning. How long will they stay?
