?A Black Skimmer put on quite a show for me at Sandy Point yesterday.  Also present was one White-rumped Sandpiper, a Saltmarsh Sparrow, Black-crowned Night-Heron and Clapper Rail.    Not much tern activity.  So much for my hypothesis about the spring plankton blooms and baitfish.  I ran into some commercial fishermen gathering some baitfish.   They were saying that there was a real scarcity this year.
