Southport Survey # 240

The tide was mid-falling and the water calm. Sky was partly cloudy.  
Off shore some Cormorants were flying west and there were a  
scattering of gulls about. There were no terns to be seen. The  
Oystercatcher was observed flying out to sunken Island soon after it  
became exposed. The Killdeer and the Semipalmated Plovers were on the  
flats of Southport Harbor. Formerly the Canada Goose was resident in  
the area. This year it is irregularly seen. And the Mallards have  
been less frequently seen.
