Thursday Noon Marsh Discovery Trail Walk

   IMG_7167-1  Our Thursday lunchtime walk on the otherwise-closed Marsh Discovery Trail gave us nice looks at Dunlins, peeps and yellowlegs — plus that lingering Bufflehead.
   Least Tern, Common Nighthawk and Willets were seen by others at DeKorte during the day.
   The walks continue next week — lightning and/or torrential rains cancels.
   Full list follows — sort of a coming-attractions list for the weekend.
