WIR 7/19-7/25

Wednesday 7/19: Usual at Forest Grove.

Thursday 7/20: Nothing exciting at Sedge Meadow beyond a Monarch.

Friday 7/21: Somatochlora and the usual at BBN.

Saturday 7/22: Did some more county listing. Started at Belle Isle where I got four for Suffolk (all easy, SB Dowitcher flyover, Bank and Rough-winged Swallow, and Saltmarsh Sparrow). Lots of peep but nothing all that exciting. Continued to the far side, which had more of the same. Decided to skip the beaches and go to Squantum where I got Semipalmated Sandpiper, Lesser Yellowlegs, Pectoral Sandpiper, and Least Tern for Norfolk. Quick stop at Blair Pond had a few Least but no Semi.

Sunday 7/23: Wandered Bedford a bit. Ravens at Hartwell Town Forest, Broad-wings at Fawn Lake (and lots of odes including Vesper and Slender Bluets). Decided to continue into Billerica and walked the Great Meadows trail for a while, which was quiet. Hummer was the best on the trail and a Fish Crow while walking from the parking lot to the river were about it.

Monday 7/24: Finally got a Least Bittern at Great Meadows before the rain got too bad. Least Sandpiper too.

Tuesday 7/25: Nothing unusual at Heard Pond but the swallow show was something.
