 Hi All,

Still fairly quiet on the returning shorebird front at Grace Salmon Park in Westport and Sherwood Island. Still it was good to catch up with everyone and we managed to enjoy a little refresher session on separating yellowlegs and aging and identifying the common peeps (about 150 Semi-P's on the flats and 25+ Leasts). Highlights were in the form of a couple of Yellow-crowned Night-Herons (1 adult and 1 juvie) and the rather surprising sighting of a female Northern Pintail.

Good Birding
