Nummy's Island - Wednesday, April 15th, 2015

Tonight's Nummy Island walk was very interesting. First, we had eight Tricolored Herons in beautiful breeding plumage along with a dozen Horned Grebes, most in breeding plumage, and a lone Red-necked Grebe providing a great comparison. Down near the 'pay' bridge we had great looks at a Grey Seal, a rather unusual sighting. While watching the seal, we had a flight of 25 Whimbrel fly in and a pair of Royal Terns fly over.  All in all, another great evening at Nummy Island.  Leaders: Warren Cairo, Gail Dwyer, Shaun Bamford, Michael McCabe, and Bill & Lee Smyth.
