I did a pretty comprehensive survey of the Lynnfield Marsh IBA. These are the cumulative sightings of 6 stops in various areas of the marsh including the industrial Park and several conservation areas. The surprise was a Caspian tern putting on quite a show at the big pond in the industrial park off of Audubon Rd. It was flying strongly about and diving into the water. Some photos of the Caspian tern are here: http://tinyurl.com/kfq6pt9
