There were 34 Gadwall on the "no swimming" pond. I believe this is the highest ever count of adult birds for the reserve (MD).
Shoveler 2 male
Some of the Gadwall with the two Shoveler.
Whooper swan - 3 flew very low across the reserve west to east - honking all the way.
This was the only one above the tree line as they left reserve to east.
Pinkfoot three skiens together to south. 60, 44 & 71
Jack snipe 1 flitting around the salt marsh in morning.
