WIR 7/6-7/12

Wednesday 7/6: BBN started muggy. More Great Blue Skimmers were up at the top of the hill, then a really out of season meadowlark was at the bottom!

Thursday 7/7: Nothing much at Cookson or the dam.

Friday 7/8: Meriam’s and Kaveski had the usual, no Chestnut-sided or Alder.

Saturday 7/9: Concord 4th of July butterfly count. Main result was that we need to scout new locations, all of our morning sites were either overgrown or solar farms. A few FOY skippers and some ok other bugs but not much.

Sunday 7/10: Heard had 3 deer and FOF Solitary Sandpipers. Spotted Sandpiper family at the bridge. More of the same at Sedge Meadow.

Monday 7/11: West Meadow was quiet, so I had enough time to run around the parkway marsh and get Least Sandpipers for the patch yearlist.

Tuesday 7/12: Very little at Alewife. Fish Crow over the yard.
