Lots of Action on the Saw Mill Creek Mudflats

Roy Woodford reports: Ron Shields and I took a trip out in our kayaks from Laurel Hill into the Saw Mill Creek Mudflats on Tuesday. There’s lots of activity out there (aside from the Ring-billed and Herring Gulls).  We found scores of small Diamondback Terrapins, lots of Great and Snowy Egrets, a few juvenile Yellow-crown Night Herons, a few Great Blue Herons … and a few not often seen around these parts. You just never know what you’ll find around here. (Above are Roy’s photos of a Marbled Godwit and Black-bellied Plover.
