Southport Survey # 191

The past week can be characterized as rather dull. However on new  
species was found on the Southport Golf Course (Least Sandpiper).  
Otherwise there is a decline in shorebirds. We are in the lull when  
the Semipalmated Sandpipers are mostly gone and the Dunlin have yet  
to show.

An interesting aside was a flock of Swallows collecting Grit in one  
of the Sand Traps
Barn Swallow 22, Northern Rough-winged Swallow 3, Tree Swallow 3
