The tide is low now (just after 5 p.m.). In theory at least, it will also be low around 5:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. tomorrow (Friday); 6:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday; and 7:30 a.m. and 8 p.m. Sunday.
We plan to close the tidegates again on Monday at low tide to create the round-the-clock mudflats again. They should be back to "low normal" by Wednesday." A big thank you to NJMC Naturalist Mike Newhouse for adjusting the tidegates; it is a lot of work.
We just saw two of the least Least Bitterns on Least Least Bittern Island (we just made up that name, believe it or not) in the Shorebird Pool.
Ron Shields reports seeing the Tricolored Heron today along the Marsh Discovery Trail where the Alpha Male Red-winged Blackbird used to hang out.
