At the very low tide this morning a group of 4 walked the Deer Lagoon dike
trails eventually out to Useless Bay. Birds are moving back into the area
after northern breeding. Highlights included about 3 dozen black bellied
plovers, 100+ caspian terns, 50+ mew gulls, several dozen bonapate's gulls,
20 white pelicans, 40+ western sandpipers, and 30+ GBH on the outer
tideflats.
A team of citizen science people were checking traps set in the southern
portion of Deer Lagoon to survey for possible spread of the green crab,
Carcinus maenas....none were caught.
