2016 Lynnfield Marsh-nesting Bird Census.

Denise Young, Linda Ireland, and Chris Martone met with Betty Adelson, Conservation Administrator for the Lynnfield Conservation Commission. We toured the Partridge Island Trail to focus on: (1) the removal of invasive Glossy Buckthorn, (2) the location of a new observation platform on the north side of the first Partridge Island, and (3) counting birds for the census. Great to see the boardwalk between islands has been rebuilt, but caution is still required as the start and end of this new boardwalk is missing ramps/steps.

68F, 89% humidity, 8mph wind, mostly sunny.
Locations: Partridge 8:35-11:30am. Audubon Road 11:40-12:53pm.

Non-avian: nine chipmunks, seven turtles at Audubon Road area, one rabbit at Audubon Road.
