Warm (mid 70s), humid, mostly cloudy, light southwest winds. I checked the beach and Dunes and walked briefly through the Meadow before leaving. The biting flies were vicious, the main reason I didn't stay longer. One bat observed coming in off Lake Michigan. The fluddle on the public beach is disappearing fast.

    Comments: Heard calling in flight over the beach around dawn. A series of 4 or 5 mellow, low notes - "whi-whi-whi-whi". Heard calling 3 or 4 times. I'm familiar with this call from hearing Uplands during migration at Montrose and other locations.
