Started at the Knubble to seawatch and then worked out way to Richmond Pond where we covered the pond, beach, and nature trail. Following Richmond Pond we worked the various thickets on Howland and Cross Rd.
Lots of activity throughout the morning with good numbers of certain species. Surprisingly no late warbler species and other S-bound migratory passerines.
32-47°F | 0-7mph NW | very clear to start but clouding up around mid. morning
