Black Skimmers, Mill Creek Marsh

B Black Skimmer 005a1 MCM Mdwlnds NJ at Twilite 061111 OK-1Mickey Raine reports:

"Elaine and I had gone over to Mill Creek Marsh late Saturday, and just as we were leaving, out of nowhere, a Black Skimmer came gliding by with such silent grace and speed. 

"I really had no time to make any adjustments on the camera setting other than using a night flash to capture some color as it flew by and soared far to the other side, where it surveyed the surface a few times as it met up with two others before flying off.

"The light was very limited [just after sunset], and it happened so quickly, but in any event, it is on record."

Thanks, Mickey!

    There were two skimmers working the east end of the Teal Pool at 6:30 this evening. They worked the area for about ten minutes. It was cloudy and gray, so maybe that’s what brought them out early.
